I had these two mall related dreams Sunday morning:
I had both Coliseum and Newmarket Fair dreams. In the Coliseum Mall dream, I think I had missed the demolition ceremony for the mall, and I had also missed a television special about the demolition. I got so upset by this I started crying, and somehow my cries appeased someone, and they had found me footage of the TV special, but the footage I was able to see looked as though it was shot though binoculars, all I could see was a distance shot of the mall area. The mall was gone, but the J.C. Penney and the Hechts (yeah, when I was writing this dream down, I didn’t write Macys, whoops) was still up, but the new J.C. Penney was built and open — it seemed teeny tiny compared to the old J.C. Penney. And the footage looked very old, as though it was shot on the mall’s opening day, not 30 something years later when the mall was dead.
The Newmarket Fair dream I had took place after the mall stopped being a mall. Everything had been painted white (I guess as a primer coat), and even the insides of stores had been gutted and replaced with white dry wall. I was walking around, pretty much lost since everything was white. Then I realized that I had become trapped in the mall — and that Snape guy from the Harry Potter books and movies was keeping me captive. Every entrance in and out of a store had been drywalled over as I was walking through the mall, and I was trapped in the stores. I thought I was trapped there forever, until I saw a small opening between the dry wall, and the floor on the second level of the mall right above Sears. I could look through this space, and I could see a red light coming from the old Sears sign, and the floor to the first level. The space between the dry wall and the floor was large enough for me (shuh, yeah I know that must of been a BIG opening) to squeeze and fall through onto the first floor. I was scared, but I knew that it was my only way out. So I squeeze though the opening, and fell onto the first floor of the mall in front of Sears. There on the first floor was this annoying as —- student at my school who is never prepared for his classes, and is always clueless about everything. I assume we both ran out of the mall.
