I had taken a nap for about an hour. I received a vivid dream.
I found myself running into a building a couple of times. I knew where everything was. I was given a brief tour of where the bathroom was and the hallways and bedrooms. A few stairs down into a veranda or lobby had a checkered floor and then a door that cant move open completely into a restroom. It felt like I was in a hotel or a large mansion. Not quite sure. But I recall the place feeling very much like a giant white architecture. Feels victorian too at the same time. This lobby area or veranda had wooden furniture and plants in pots. As I was feeling my bladder in this dream, I ran all over the house looking for the restroom. As I was walking down these few stairs to get to the veranda/lobby area, plants were all hoarded as if there was no path to get through the bathroom. As I finally got through, I didnt feel like going to the bathroom anymore.
There was an old man sitting at one of the wicker chairs. He was dressed in a nice suit. Looks like a man from the South. But as I walked closer to him his face kept changing. At first he looked like one of my Uncles, Filipino/Spanish man and then later he would also look like the Coloniel from KFC. I know hilarious right? His face kept changing. He even sometimes looked like some of my college professors back in the day.
As I approached him and forgotten about going into the bathroom, we had a conversation about language. He asked me, “So tell me about learning Ilocano.” Ilocano is my parent’s native language in the Philippines. I told him, “My parents said I need to learn the modern Ilocano instead of the old Ilocano.” I slowly walked towards him. He nodded and sort of smiled and laughed, “Yes yes. What do you mean?” I explained to him, “I should learn to speak Ilocano the way people speak it. Not old school.” He asked me, “Like example?” I told him, “Naimbag nga bigat mo?” He laughed and said, “Ahh yes.”
I knew that nobody actually speak that way. But I told him that its kinda impressive for the Old people to hear it from me.
I finally woke up and had to run to the bathroom. Hahaha I guess the feeling of wanting to pee actually was real.
