An unpleasant dream in which I'm back at N___ Hospital again, but instead of being an employee, I'm a patient on the psychiatric ward. S___ P_____ is my psychiatrist. It takes me a while to recognize him and we reminisce how we went to N___ Academy, R___ Academy, and P____ College together (I'll have to look in my yearbooks, this may actually be right but I never would have remembered even his name without this dream ... also, I think he might have even been my roommate my senior year of college! ... I'm just having trouble remembering because that WAS 30 years ago).
He's not sure he's going to release me from the ward.
(shift) Now I'm in my old brick apartment that was near this hospital IRL. I'm annoyed that there's a dead, bloody rat on the floor. Stupidly I put the rat on a plate and try to wash the blood off of it in the kitchen sink. But when I move too fast, the water sloshes over the back edge of the sink down along the wall. I peer over the edge and see that there's nothing to worry about, for there's an elaborate drain system that has a chute leading directly outdoors (this part of the dream was remarkably cohesive, the drain looked very real ... also, this was precognitive for later on, after I woke up, my little cat got spooked and leaped over her water dish, causing most of it to slosh out all over the kitchen floor ... and then, after that, I tried to fix the downspout outside my kitchen window before I went to work today but couldn't do it, and finally stopped when I felt like I was on the verge of cursing loudly).

A tale about getting a dinner to a woman who's ill and reclusive, although she is young. The dinner is steak with gravy and green beans (precognitive, that's what they had at my hospital cafeteria for dinner tonight). We throw a plate together and head over to her apartment. But once inside we're surprised to find it immaculately cleaned and a famous musician is at the piano with two little boys he's tutoring. The woman is nowhere in sight. Repairs are needed on the woman's vehicle which is a cross between a model-T and an old train locomotive.
A man tells the woman it will be a lot of money.
I think that I wake up, and I start recording this dream, but I'm still asleep and don't know it. I actually say, "tale about a getting a dinner to a woman," and then I wake up for real. I say those exact same words as I begin recording the dream in real life -- "tale about getting a dinner to a woman."
(fall back to sleep)
In my old C___ apartment, my brother, B____, says, "I'm off next Sunday."
My sister-in-law immediately interjects with, "You almost went down the wrong road there," as she glares at him.
I immediately figure out that she meant that cryptically and that she was conveying the message, "You almost invited Al over on Sunday, and we have other plans."
I wake up.
