This dream has been viewed 3429 times.I heard the doorbell ring late late into the night. The house was silent and everyone was fast asleep. I knew that I would not be able to sleep for wondering who was ringing my doorbell so late. I got up and couldn't find my robe, the one I normally wear, so I grabbed a different robe. As I put it on, in my mind I was remarking that I thought this particular robe had been lost. I ventured downstairs and turned on the porch light. At the door was an acquaintance named Bob Bringer. He was smiling, but I suspected he had been drinking. I asked him through the glass what he wanted. He just kept smiling and gesturing me to open the door. I would not and I turned off the light. I went around to a different window that looks out on the porch and peeked through the blinds. To do this scared me, I was terribly afraid of what I might see. But the porch was empty.
Sometime later in the night I was dreaming again and I realized it was my daughter that had rung the doorbell, having forgotten her key. She was sleeping in a different bed. Again I had to grab my robe to go see where she was, this time finding my proper robe. I looked out the window of the room she slept in, and saw that someone was ripping the roof off my garage. I looked again and saw I had been mistaken. I tried to close my eyes and picture in my mind what I had seen the first time but I could not.
Additional Comments:After I awoke, it occurred to me that the dream felt futurish. The acquaintance, Bob Bringer has been ill for a long time due to a serious drinking problem.
