1) I'm at work one night, and Carrie Thomas comes in and tells me I have to act in a play the next day and I need to go home and memorise a bunch of lines. The play is some kind of modern-day take on Hamlet. I get back to work the next morning and I'm wearing PT gear. I haven't memorised my lines at all, plus I'm supposed to be in a dance recital that morning. Work looks like a classroom, and there are these really nice Apple laptops at every desk. I sit at my desk, and I'm looking at stuff on the internet. I end up finding some site where a bunch of frat guys are dipping their balls in mugs of beer and then giving them to girls to drink. I think it's funny, and when JoAnn comes in, I show it to her. Then some PT leader guy comes in and we all stand in a circle lifting dumbbells. The PT leader guy is standing right behind me, so I turn around and tell him to get off my ass. JoAnn starts laughing, and I tell her I've had enough PT and that I need to study my lines for the play that afternoon.

1) I'm at the gym, and I see my Chief. I say hi to her, and she tells me that my deployment has moved up, and that I need to report to the squadron immediately. I grab all my stuff and head to the squadron. Everyone is there, packing all their stuff, and getting ready to ship out. I'm worried because I haven't had a chance to pack or get my house in order. I see Frank and ask him if he's packed, and he says he's not even going on the deployment now. I go back where everyone's bags are, and wonder if someone packed mine for me.

2) I'm driving down the road with someone, and we see a girl pushing her car on the side of the road. We stop and ask if she needs help. We get her car to some old cabin, and she says she just needs gas. I give her my credit card and she says she'll be back in a minute. I tell my friend that I think I can trust this girl, because the last girl I helped ended up stealing my wallet (which may have been from a totally different dream). The girl comes back and puts gas in her car. As she's about to leave, some guys in a big pickup truck try to steal her car. I go outside and try to stop them. Then, somehow, I'm watching all this play out on a video, and this guy is standing behind me narrating, like he's seen it all before. I leave and hop in a bug truck with a bunch of guys, and we go to an apartment where we're all living. I get on Facebook and see that my Mom has logged in. I try to chat with her, but then I turn around and see she's standing right behind me. I get up and give her a hug.

1) I'm at work, and it's a mix of people from my shops in Utah and Italy. We're having some kind of luncheon and I'm trying to linger at the back of the room. Our superintendent calls me out, and makes me stand in front of everyone because I'm getting ready to deploy. I move toward the front of the room, and stand between two other guys. Everyone starts telling funny stories about me, but I don't remember any of the stories actually happening. I just keep smiling and laughing when everyone else laughs. Then they ask me to tell a story, but I'm not sure if anything I remember will be something they remember.
