This is my first lucid dream in memory. First, I was outside our hall lounge with this guy who kept changing, but at one point it was Laura's boyfriend Michael (whom I dislike). I was hugging him and nuzzling his face and neck.
Then I saw this cartoon-like series of images that I knew weren't real. It was of an animal that kept changing forms. It was fluid, one kind after another: bear, fish, monster, robot, etc. It was really cool, like I was awake with my eyes closed.
(I was actually at work, sleeping on the couch.) I heard Martha get home, so I tried to get up and explain to her, but I couldn't move! My body wouldn't do what I told it to; my arms were frozen, and the only sounds I could make were little gasps. I heard her telling the boys that I was whispering to myself, then I was finally able to get up. It turns out she wasn't home after all.
