This Is What Happens When You Get Poked In A Dream

At least, that was my experience when I got poked.

Dreams fascinate me. I’ve been dreaming for a long time. I think we all do, but most of us don’t care about them. Generally speaking, the only time dreams get people’s attention is when they scare the bejeebus out of them. Nightmares, as they call them. I have never had one. That’s because I pay attention to them.

I’ve been using dreams for personal use longer than I have tried to figure them out. The only reason I got interested in studying dreams is that they invited me. I mean, they didn’t send me a formal invitation; they just piqued my interest.

More interest I took in them, the more they weird they got. I mean for someone who calls himself Mister Weirdo to find something strange, it’s gotta be pretty out there. Check out this story from my book that I shared on Medium a few months ago.

I got poked while I was sleeping, and it got me thinking. Well, I’ll let you read and find out. There is more to it than meets the eye, I guess. What do you think?

As always, thank you for reading and responding. If that story intrigued you, then you might find these other dream stories interesting too.
