You Must Be Dreaming

(Image from I Can Has Cheezburger)

Uncle John had a dream about balloons, a coffin, and a laughing white rabbit at a picnic on a deserted island. What does it all mean? Here are some dream interpretations we found in a fortune-telling book from the 1920s. Read them, and all will be revealed.

Beggars: If you refused a beggar, your life will be miserable. If you gave money to a beggar, you will live a long and happy life.

Coffins: You will soon marry and have a house of your own.

Gambling: If you won, a friend will die. If you lost, you will move to a new residence.

Falling snow: There will be obstacles in your path.

Umbrella: Good luck is near.

Watching a ball game: Money will soon come to you.

Sleeping dog: Relax -you have nothing to worry about.

Police officer: Beware of false friends!

Saving a drowning woman: You will marry someone famous.

Climbing a ladder: If you’re climbing up the ladder, wealth is coming your way. If you’re climbing down, your headed for the poorhouse.

Killing a spider: Bad luck.

Warts: If it’s summertime, you’ll have good luck. If you dream of warts in winter, you’ll have bad luck.

You, hiding in the forest: You are in danger.

You, on a deserted island: A friend will turn against you.

Pigeons: Good news is coming your way.

Running, barking dog: Pay attention to your personal affairs; someone could be taking advantage of you.

The gallows: You will soon have an opportunity to make money.

Balloons: Something you’re planning for the future may seem likely to succeed, but like a balloon, it will burst into nothing.

Mirror: Someone will betray you.

Riding a train: You and your  mate will soon separate.
