I Dream of Muslimahs?

No, no, really, I just did.

I don't usually remember my dreams, so I count this as weird.

I was in Wal-Mart, of all places, just wandering around, shopping.

And then I spotted the Wall of Scarves that must have been something like ten feet tall, and I headed over there, because, scarves! (This, by the by, makes my dream Wal-Mart the best Wal-Mart ever).

And as I get there, I run into a *wall* of muslimahs, and they were all so pretty and had lovely scarves on... They thought I was one of them, and one of them said 'asalaam alaykum' (or *however* you spell it - I've seen it so many different ways, I'm not sure it matters) and I said hello, and she looked so *disappointed* and I had to say I wasn't a Muslim, and then they stopped talking to me! (I'm doomed to social awkwardness even in my dreams! See! They rejected me!) The one who was standing next to me was even a niqabi, with a pretty purple niqab.

So I made my way through the group to the scarves, and was picking out a pretty white one with red and black floral patterns on it, and kneeling down, and some woman just pushed me over! Not one of the muslimahs, just some random blonde woman!

And then I woke up. Stupid alarm clock.


  1. lol...that was 2 funny.

    "Just a random blonde out of no where pushed you over"

  2. Awwww, poor Amber was rejected in her own dream. :-) Cute dream. I don't see why the spelling of that Arabic greeting matters. I always found it amusing when people would *themselves* spell their names differently when writing me (e.g. Basheer or Bashir or Belal or Bilal). I guess since in Arabic, it looks totally different they don't care how you spell it in English as long as you know what you/they are talking about! :-)

    I hate waking up before dreams are over -- if they are interesting ones, that is. Thanks for sharing this one with us. :)

  3. LOL! Was the one with the purple niqab me? (I *do* like purple an awful lot...)

    Yep, that is most definitely the best Walmart EVAH. : D

  4. What did you eat before you went to bed????

  5. LOL hillarious. I want a Walmart with a wall of scarves!

    That is one unique dream.

  6. Tiffany,

    Clearly, I have issues with blondes! :)

  7. Susanne,

    I know! :(

    I think english spelling of arabic is almost phonetic, so I just try to type it like it sounds, and hope it all comes out in the wash. :)

  8. Heather,

    It could have been. :)

    It was definately a white woman, with a very nice deep purple/metallic threaded niqab.

  9. Michelle,

    Nothing! :)

    It was just a random dream of weirdness.

  10. LK,

    Yeah, I want my dream Wal-Mart too! It'd be great!
