Last night I had a dream that I was a character in the TV show Scrubs. For some reason my character was staying with JD, Turk and Carla. My character was sleeping on the couch for the duration of her stay and every morning stole JD’s scrubs and wore them to work.

He couldn’t figure out where all his scrubs were disappearing to and no one suspected me, even though the scrubs I was wearing to work were far too big for me.

Is that a crazy thing to dream, or what?

Before we delve into the deep meanings of this dream I just have to state that I realize that Zach Braff is probably skinnier than me in real life. But in my dream he wasn’t so I don’t want to hear it.

Okay, the analysis can begin.

First of all, this was an incredibly vivid and detailed dream. (I recall having a conversation with Carla about the ugly nightie Turk bought her for their anniversary.) And I always wonder if my dreams mean anything — especially the incredibly vivid and detailed ones.

Everyone wonders that, right? It isn’t just me, is it?

So I’ve been wondering all day what could it all possibly mean?

Maybe the dream means that I want to get into Zach Braff’s pants and my brain is just being punny about it. Dirty!

That seems like a lot of mental gymnastics on behalf of my psyche in order to make such a simple point. Especially since I already know that I secretly want to get into Zackie’s pants. I know, I’m dirty. But he’s adorable and brilliant — and the new voice on the Wendy’s commercials! That’s hard fantasy material to resist!

But I do resist it because I am, of course, pure in every way.

Okay, stop laughing. Enough about Braff boy’s dreamy nature. I guess this dream mystery is solved, and pretty shallow. I hate when my psyche manifests itself in such obvious and shallow ways!

Anyway, even if (some) dreams mean something intensely deep and vitally important to our lives I wouldn’t advise eating Taco Bell and watching Scrubs right before you go to bed — no matter how much you’re craving spicy food. Unless you like to dream about Zach Braff that is.
