The Broken Cellphone Dream

Tell me if you’ve had this dream. For urgent dream-reasons1 you must call someone. You reach for your phone but it isn’t there! You frantically search for it. It isn’t in your pockets, on your desk, beside the couch, or in your car. Where the Hell is it? In desperation, you root through your closets and find one of your old phones. You’re saved! Relieved you try calling only to find the old phone doesn’t work; it’s broken. Lately, I’ve had repeated versions of this dream. The missing and broken cellphone dream is the new going-to-school-without-pants dream.


  1. Dream reasons are compelling in the dream but often vanish on waking.↩︎
