Ice Cream Dreams
One of my friends maintains that you'll have nightmares if you eat cheese right before going to bed, and I've found that he's correct. Sometimes I'll eat it right before sleeping anyway. I find that it's a safe way to have fantastic, bizarre dreams in some kind of lo-fi hallucinogenic land where I can never run quite fast enough or jump far enough. I've also found that ice cream and other dairy has the same bad-dream effect. Sometimes I won't remember my dreams when I eat dairy before going to bed, and now I'm wondering if it still gives me bad dreams and causes unrestful sleep. Maybe that's why I was constantly tired between1st and 8th grade, since I would eat a bowl of ice cream before going to bed for those seven years. Also, maybe that's why I don't like ice cream.
