Speaking

When I was young, I would record my dreams last night. I can’t, but when you write down some details you can remember more and more. Sometimes, when you wake up you would remember a part of them so I would record them and I would remember more.

If you imagine you lose your teeth, something will happen to your older relatives. Once I dreamed about that and my grandmother had cancer of her nose. When you dream about poo poo, you will be rich. Sometimes, I dream that I will buy some tickets and win a prize.

I have that kind of experience when I am doing something and it happens. It’s a normal situation where I talk to somebody and I dream of you with the same topic.
