Science-fiction et le canal reves-bizarres

I dreamed there was an experimental rocket (I've been enjoying the SpaceX news) from NASA called the XM-1 or something like that. They needed an astronaut and were having a meeting at Los Alamitos. Since it was experimental, no one wanted to do it. I was sitting in the audience and I raised my hand, saying, "I volunteer." When they told me I was too old, I said that there weren't any other people stepping forward, and that all my life people have told me I was too short, too old, too young, too female, for anything I thought I could do. "I'd rather die at 50 in a rocket than at 100 in bed," I concluded.

I love your dream! I hope you can nudge your subconscious to return to it.

Unlikely. I'm not a lucid dreamer.

The conference was like this; a stage with a long table behind which were sitting a bunch of Army and NASA muckymucks with all of us in folding chairs with little writing desks lined up in front. I stood up and yes, I raised my hand and said, "I volunteer!" Mentally I did think, "As Tribute". YOUR FAULT.

Wait...you're 50?!? Or were you only 50 in the dream? 'Cause, you know, if you're actually 50 ... DA-YUM you look good!

I was my current age (46, 47 in August), but by the time I was trained and the rocket would be ready to go, I'd be 50.

Honestly, I had you pegged as late 30's, max.
