mother and baby hippoLast night I dreamed about a mother and baby hippopotamus who had escaped from the zoo, and about a baby seal that I owned.

The baby hippo had entered “our garage” (a place that doesn’t exist in reality), and then the Mom showed up outside the garage door. She was pissed, so we climbed out the window to avoid any confrontation.

Why did I have these dreams? I don’t know. But I really loved that baby seal. In fact, in the dream I wondered why I had gotten it, because I knew it was doomed to break my heart someday when it got sick and/or died. I guess my subconscious is reminding me NOT to get any pets no matter how cute. In fact, I think it is telling me to especially avoid very cute pets.

Here’s some cute pictures so you can simulate entering my subconscious. The one of the baby hippo underwater did not happen in my dream, but I had to include it because of the cuteness quotient.
baby seal, I wish you were mine!

    […] days later, I remembered that this is not the first dream I have had about a baby hippo. In fact, I already wrote about it […]
