Last night I had a very strange dream in which people kept trying to get me to eat veal. VEAL! They’d put it on my plate at dinner time, wave it in front of my face when I was doing dishes, and follow me all over telling me how delicious it was and how I really should try it. It was raw and dripping with blood and I kept running away from them, because all I could picture when I looked at it was this:
Ugh. I hate those pictures, and even more, I hate the reality of those pictures.
You know, even when I was an omnivore, I can’t remember a single time I ever ate veal. The idea of eating it now makes me want a throw up a little.
At any rate, why in the world would I have such a dream?? Certainly it is not that I want to eat meat – especially not veal – of that I am positive. Has anyone else had these kinds of dreams after going veg*n? I realize that a lot of people think that dreams don’t really mean anything, but I tend to think there is something there – some symbolism or message, even if it’s a really weird dream. Maybe after my disagreement this weekend, my subconscious was just reinforcing my choice to be vegan? Any suggestions are welcome! Unless you are going to suggest that I’m really creepy. I hope this dream doesn’t make me really creepy, although I fully realize that it might. I’m not creepy, I swear! (If I have to say that, maybe we have a problem after all….??)
