The other night, I wake up to the sound of Ben having a nightmare. He’s make these sounds like he’s crying in his dream, similar to what I assume I sound like when that happens to me. So, I immediately start trying to wake him up.
He comes to pretty quickly and I ask him if he’s ok.
“Yeah, why could you tell I was dreaming?”
“Yes, you sounded like you were crying.”
“No, I was starting a revolution! I was just yelling out, ‘LET’S FUCKING GOOOOOO!!!!'”
I just started hysterically laughing.
Turns out he was having a dream about a king beating him with a whip and club. Crowds of people started to form as he’s getting beaten when he finally figured out how to “mentally beat the king” and not feel the pain anymore. He tells me that’s when he started giving the king a “pump up speech” that actually started working.
That’s when he started yelling things like,
GIVE ME ANOTHER
WE WILL NOT BE CONTROLLED
WE DESERVE FREEDOM
YOU CANNOT DOMINATE US
WE WILL DO AS WE PLEASE
LET’S FUCKING GOOOOOOO
(***I am, literally, sitting here laughing so hard that I have a cramp***)
Only Ben Bergeron would have a dream about mentally beating a king and starting a revolution.
Because the last time I sounded like I was crying in my dream, I was actually bawling over Ben leaving me for another woman. I was not playing the role of Braveheart. I was playing someone more like Single White Female.
Sorry about trying to save you from your perfect dream, babe. I should’ve let you go.
