Not all dreams have a meaning, do they?

So last night I find myself having the strangest dream. There is a hair in my nose. I begin pulling on it. I finally pull out - of all things - a hairball.

I look at dreams as my subconscious trying to sort out the things bothering me. I'm not sure that a hairball up my nose lends itself to that kind of interpretation.

- Is it a metaphor for feeling overwhelmed?

- Is the hairball the stress that I'm attempting to remove from my life?

- Or is the hairball representative of obstacles, or things left unfinished?

Perhaps I was simply lying on my back and experiencing post nasal drip. Even Freud said (or I believe it was Freud anyway) "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."

So maybe the dream was just a dream. Nothing more and nothing less. Kind of like the time bigfoot sat at the end of my bed and told me a story in exchange for me teaching him how to ride a bike.

how enteraining and curious,

As long as we are guessing, Do you mind if we provide a possibility?

My guess, You are somewhat uncomfortable, You have a general idea about the source of your discomfort but have trouble getting your hands on it and are afraid things will worsen before they improve.

Or it could mean the cat has been tickling your nose at night.

Good luck
