Switch - shadows of echoes of memories of songs — LiveJournal
I dreamed that I had lost my Switch card, and in the dream I went through all that panicky feeling one goes through when one loses such things, and then found the card.

I then dreamed that I had lost it again, and not only had the panic again but also the feelings of "maybe I'll miraculously find it again like last time" which eventually are replaced by "no, this time I really have lost it" and so on.

I only discovered the second loss when I was trying to pay for cake, in a shop that looked suspiciously like Starbucks. The bill was £4.75, and I managed to find the cash but the card had definitely gone, though I did search for it in my bag.

The most notable thing about this dream was the vividness of small physical details. The way my wallet was slightly saggy at the place where the Switch card would be, with the pieces of paper and other cards which are usually behind it (and held in by it) starting to fall out, because the wallet has stretched to accommodate the enormous quantity of stuff I carry around in it. The feeling of the two £2 coins I found with which to pay for the cake, and the rummaging around in my wallet to find the other coins, and initially mistaking a Swiss 20c coin (or similarly small denomination) for the 5p (I'm still carrying loads of Swiss change around in my wallet).

Current Mood: half-asleep

According to my trusty "Dictionary for Dreamers" (paladin, 1974), the following meanings are:

Money: Anything of equivalent value, often time or energy, sometimes love (maybe)

A certain sum of money: So many days (maybe)

Cake: A promiscuous woman, a 'tart'; lust (faint maybe)

I'm just saying that's what the book says! Thassall! Being a 1974 edition, there is no mention of starbucks or debit cards. Hang on, let's check coffee: There is no coffee. But there does appear to be an entry for Drink

Drink: The earliest form of nourishment, hence drinking may be hinting at a tendency or a desire to return to babyhood (especially if drunk from the mouth of a bottle)

Milk;Semen. Men apparently require a greater proportion than women of liquid nourishment, while women's intake of solid food is larger.

Phew, I'm glad we got that sorted out gives milky coffee a look
