Funny dreams and frightening ones

I tossed and turned quite a bit last night because I was hot for some reason. I had two dreams last night. For the first time in a long time, I had a dream that had me laughing in my sleep hard enough to wake myself up. When I explained the dream to Kelly, she didn’t see how it was all that funny, but it was, trust me. The thing is, I can’t really explain it to you. It was funny in terms of dream-logic, but not regular logic. The funniest part of the dream was the fact that I was laughing so hard I woke myself up.

I also had a dream that Kelly and I got into a fight. We were climbing up the outside of a structure like the Washington Monument and I was trying to pull Kelly onto a ledge but she was talking on her cellphone. I think we started to argue about that in the dream.
