1) It's really late at night, and I'm walking around downtown with my friend Chad. We're in this alley and Chad wants to get something to eat. I don't think there's anything open that late, but we see a sushi restaurant, so I go over to see if it's open. I go inside, and this lady takes me to a seat. The restaurant is really fancy and trendy. I sit down and call Chad to tell him to come on in. While I'm waiting for him, my friend Patrick starts texting me, but I don't pay attention.

1) I'm at work and I overhear a bunch of guys saying they're going to break into the shop and steal a bunch of stuff. I tell them I want to help, so we all plan on when to meet that night. I get to the shop and it's dark and everyone else is already there. I start feeling bad, so I go into the back of the shop and lay on the couch. I fall asleep and wake up the next morning. Everyone else is already at work and they're all freaking out about all the stuff that has been stolen. They ask me if I know anything, but I don't because I was asleep the whole time. I walk outside and Ellen Degeneres is there, and she's offering me moral support and we have a great conversation.

2) I'm in high school and getting ready to graduate. Everyone in my class is walking out to the football field for practice. I'm relieved that I'm not involved in any extra-curicular activities so I can just follow everyone else. The guy standing next to me is this big football player, and he's really dumb, and I'm nervous he's going to walk the wrong way and I'm just going to follow him.

1) My Dad is having a Shriner's convention, and I'm helping to set everything up. Destiny's Child is performing, and we're all backstage. Beyonce wants to perform their charity song, and I tell them nobody wants to hear their crappy charity song. All anybody wants to hear is "Bootylicious." The girls go out on stage and sing all their songs and everyone is happy. Afterward, we're taking all the chairs down, and some guy gets frustrated with me because I mixed together two different kinds of chairs.

1) I'm going to the movies by myself. I sit down at the theatre, and realise I'm seeing "Independence Day II." I don't want to see it, but I'm already there, so I just stay. There are parts in the movie where the aliens are sticking these big metal things into peoples' chests, and I feel like I'm in the movie. The movie ends and it's really bad. The theatre is really crowded, and it takes me a while to get outside. I go back out to my truck and see that I've left it unlocked with the windows down and the driver's door wide open. Luckily, nobody has taken anything. I drive for a while, but decide that it's such a nice day, I'm going to walk the rest of the way home. I somehow end up walking by the CE dorm and look down and see that I'm only wearing my tighty-whiteys. I'm feeling pretty good about how my body looks, so it doesn't really bother me, but when I'm walking by the dorm manager's office, I see a big pile of clothes, some of which are mine, so I start going through them. This girl walks out of the dorm manager's office and starts staring at me. I'm waiting for her to ask why I'm going through all the clothes, but she never does, so I just keep looking for a pair of shorts and a t-shirt, just so I don't get arrested while walking the rest of the way home.

1) I'm in Misawa and I'm hanging out with Paul and Trish. Trish is pregnant again and goes into labour. We take a helicopter to the hospital. Paul and Trish go inside while I try to shut off the helicopter. I go inside and look for Paul and Trish. I pass by the little room where all the newborns are on display, and Paul and Trish are already in there. They bring out their new baby and I get to hold her.

2) I'm back in high school and I'm sitting in class. The teacher finished his lecture, but doesn't want to let us go home early, so we decide to play charades. I go first and I'm trying to get everyone to say "sign language." I get them to say "sign," but nobody can ever get "language," so I give up and sit down.

1) I'm at my old Church in Morganfield. A bunch of us are running around and laughing and having a good time. I see Rachel Red Cloud and she wants us all to go over to her house. I leave to go find my car, and when I get in, I suspect my brother has been driving it because the seat has been moved and the radio station has been changed. I start driving and following everyone to Rachel's house. We're driving around the backside of the Church, and they're doing all kinds of new construction.

1) I move into a new house, and I'm showing people around. It's a cool house because it goes in a big loop, but when it comes back around, the door opens behind the bathtub. I go to work and we're trying to stack a bunch of chairs, but they keep falling over. I'm trying to decide what to do, and we end up leaving them unfolded and placing them at one end of the auditorium. After work, we all go out for beers, and I'm trying to decide which to drink. I'm there with a bunch of people and I'm feeling really good because I'm telling jokes and everyone is laughing.

2) I'm in a plane with my parents. I don't know where we're going, but the plane has to make an emergency landing in Tokyo. I'm excited because I want to see Japan again. We get off the plane and we're walking around downtown.

1) Lana and I are on a double date with another couple. We are in Lana's car, and she's driving. We go to the theatre to see if Brokeback Mountain is playing. It is, and we're parking, but Lana pulls up next to a curb that's painted red. We talk for a minute about if we'll get towed, but we go inside anyway. The movie has just started, and when we sit down, there are only a few other people in the theatre.

1) I'm on a retreat with a bunch of people from Church. We're at the beach somewhere, and, by coincidence, my parents and some other family are staying in the same town. We've been hanging out on the beach a lot and having Church services. One night, my parents ask me to come by their hotel room. I get there and they start lecturing me about Brad having a hard time at school because of sports. And then they start asking why a bunch of the single people leave Church after the praise and worship. After that, my aunt Suzie tells me I'm not a very good shoe salesman.

1) I'm at work, and everyone decides to go to the chow hall for lunch. We get there, and all the tables are already marked b people putting their hats on them. We get our food, and come back to find that all the hats are still there, but nobody is sitting down yet. I get really frustrated and start throwing people hats off of tables. After lunch, I'm walking down a hallway and get pulled into a room by Billy Bob Thornton and Tim Robbins. Don is there, too, and Billy Bob and Tim are trying to get him to run for President. We're talking and suddenly, Tim starts making out with Don. Billy Bob gets jealous and pulls out a big knife and kills them both. I just kinda stand there, and grab my hat and walk out. I'm nervous because there's blood all over my clothes and I'm trying to cover it up. I go into a store and pick up a soda and nobody says anything about the blood.

1) I wake up, look at my phone, and see that it's 9:30, and I was supposed to be at PT at 6. I freak out and jump out of bed. I'm freaking out even more because it's still dark outside, and I'm hoping my clock is wrong, but all the other clocks in my house say the same thing. I grab my phone and start dialing my parents number, but realise they won't be at home, so I try to remember the number for my Mom's office. I go into my kitchen and everything is a mess.

1) I'm living at home, and this 20-something lady comes to live with us because she wants to take classes at our church. Dad asks me to show her around. She seems very cold and suspicious at first, but she warms up and ends up being a very nice girl. We all go to the beach to visit with my Mom's sisters. They're all arguing when we get there, and my Mom tries to make peace between them all. They start talking about all the sugar they ate as little girls. Then we all go see Gwen Stefani in concert and Gwen is throwing her shoes to everyone in the crowd.

1) I'm on a deployment and hanging out in my tent. Garah is there and we're talking about our careers. Garah says she's going to get out of the Air Force, but I tell her I'm staying in. I'm talking with some other guy about getting promoted. I'm worried about making Tech Sergeant on my next cycle, especially before I hit my ten-year mark.
