As classes are getting started for many of us, I was just wondering if anyone has had that dream where you're naked in front of class, and perhaps you also forgot your notes?

I haven't had it yet, but I know it's on the way. It happens every year.

Strangely, I've never had any variant of that dream, and still sometimes have dreams where I'm a student and it's near the end of the semester and I just realize I'm registered and have to take a test for a course I've never attended.

I have that same dream.

I also have "stress" dreams that stem from all my years waiting tables - the ones where I've got a million people sitting down and tables that aren't set and I can't remember any of their orders and I'm the only one working and... (you get the picture).

I have NEVER had that dream either.. or even that thought. I wonder what that means.

I also haven't had the dream Clear talks about.

I actually haven't had that many dreams recently (last few years that is). I miss them. They can be fun (although sometimes they're scary).

My nightmares usually involve trying to program something that isn't programable. In general terms, a logical error makes me think I can work out a puzzle that isn't really solvable, and I'll spend all night on it if I don't manage to wake up and see the futility of my efforts. It's like Camus for greeks, I mean geeks.

...but I guess that's better than co-ed naked exams. Dear secret correspondents, you always give me something to be grateful for.

I sometimes have the dream clear talks about (have to take a final for a course you registered for but never showed up to), with the added twist that the course is in the subject that my Dad is a professor of.

Oh, Thistle. I think I know what you're getting at.

When I've had Clear's dream and been most stressed out is when it's in the second subject of my double-major (the one I didn't go on to get a PhD in).

Do you feel like you should know something about the subject, because of your dad?

Fraud: Although I wish there were some other, more interesting psychological reason, I think what you said pretty much sums it up.

co-ed naked exams - Hah! I'd never heard of them before, funny!
