The dream dictionary is ill-equipped for this one.

Last night I dreamt that — after answering a riddle presented by a naked man in the hot tub — I had to cross a post-apocalyptic wasteland with another person in order to find an abandoned dog.
We hiked up an abandoned road to an underpass littered with the shells of semi trucks. Our flashlights didn’t give off enough light to see much, but we could hear something moving & knew that the pup was there. (Can you feel the suspense building? I totally could.) After much cooing and offering of treats, the dog came close enough for us to assess the situation.
What had we come all this way to rescue? A three-footed weiner dog wearing a clown suit:
(Yes, of course there would be photos of weiner dogs in clown suits on the internet. Technology, I owe you a beer.)
In theory, everything in your dream is a part of yourself. Of course, this little bit of knowledge leaves me with many more questions than answers. Or is it many questions I don’t want answered? I forget. In any case, I present you with the following quiz:
- 1) What part of me is best represented by a weiner dog?
- 1.a) Does the fact that the weiner dog is missing a foot change your answer?
- 2) What part of me is best represented by a clown suit?
- 3) Why must my subconscious force me to ask questions like these?
Thanks for your participation. These will be graded on a curve.
