I rarely remember my dreams (typically I can recall one every couple of months), but I've had them for two nights in a row, so I'm going to keep a notebook by my bed for awhile so I can recall them more clearly. In fact, I woke up from a dream at 5:30 this morning, but I was so focused on it I couldn't get back to sleep.

Anyway, I was at this YMCA-type place, but it was also like a hangout for teens and 20-somethings. There were basketball courts and people just milling about. The hoops were kinda weird though...the backboards were all wobbly and had to be adjusted with this tiny spring-like screw at the bottom. I was playing a game of 3-on-3 basketball for awhile, but I got kicked off my own team by Josh...apparently I was talking too much trash, but I don't think Josh was even playing.

Later, I ended up playing a game against Josh's team, on a different court where you had to go under some fence-type bridge (?) to get to. Josh and I got into it, as we are prone to do when sports competition is involved (see: ultimate frisbee). We were playing a co-ed game, and some girl had an open look at the top of the key. I was the nearest defender, and as I was closing out on the shooter, I felt this elbow in my back which just shoved me out of the way. I expected it to be Josh, but it was some other girl whom Josh had told to do that. I got even more amped after that, and got a steal on their next possession. I rushed a wide-open 20-footer, and hit nothing but the backboard, then Josh got the rebound and blew an uncontested layup. We made fun of each other, played some more heated possessions, and then I woke up.

I really wish I could remember my previous night's dream better, because I remember some very bizarre and entertaining stuff was happening. But alas, I did not write anything down and now have almost no idea what truly happened. I do remember at the end that I was dating a close friend of mine, who shall remain anonymous for her own protection!

Was it me? Were you dating me? Are you trying to protect me from the internet stalkers?

Also I was mentioned in a craigslist ad, I'm a friendly neighbor, I'll try t post it later.

yeah for you! I'm proud...I'm just gonna have to break out that dream dictionary I showed you and then we can see just how well it works!

To dream that you are playing basketball, indicates that you will need the cooperation and assistance of others in order to achieve your goals. Perhaps you are standing in the way of your own progress and need to ask for help.

To see a basketball in your dream, suggests that you need to make the first move. You also need to concentrate and be more focused in your goals.

Does this sound right?

I think my basketball dream has more to do with the fact that I really really love basketball, and less to do with psychoanalysis. Regardless, I guess I could say those both sound right, maybe? WTF does me dating one of my best friends mean then? I didn't remember my dream from last night, unfortunately...maybe tonight!

I looked everywhere to find anything about dating your friend, maybe its as simple as being a underlying urge...and maybe it's for YOUR protection that you don't use her name!
