Screaming with Silence

Last night I dreamt about being mugged. I was trying to run away from the bearded man with dark brown hair, as he was catching up to me and was trying to steal my purse.
I tried to scream but only soft sounds came out of my mouth. I tried again; multiple times even, but only soft "helps" would come out. I finally got away in a crowd of people.

Then the dream suddenly went to a conversation with a friend of a friend about his divorce.

And then I woke up.

Weird, huh?

I have a lot of dreams in which i try to scream or cry "help" and I can't. Sometimes just to check, I try screaming in my car or something the next day. Just to make sure I actually can scream.

heh, curly sue! i've never actually checked afterward, but i've had a lot of those dreams too.

i do like it when it switches to a more innocuous dream before waking up.

Hmm. I didnt try screaming the next day, but I think I might now, if I have another dream like that :)
