I dreamed I was driving my beloved late Italian Grandfather to an appointment with a hairdresser to get his hair cut. In the dream it was not surprised to see my Grandpa and I acted like this was normal. However, this was clearly in the future because I was driving him in some kind of weird huge truck with two rows of seats that I wasn't exactly comfortable driving. The roads were chaotic with other cars driving erratically and at one point it was snowing so bad that I couldn't see very clearly. I thought I saw a man lying at the side of the road on his back in a sort of fetal position. I wanted to stop and see if he was hurt but Grandpa didn't want to stop because he would be late for his appointment [This is of course not what my Grandpa would have done... he was a chief of police.]. So we get to the place, it's in an urban city center that I don't recognize. I park the truck thing and take him inside. There are two older Asian ladies sleeping on the chairs and one of them wakes up to take care of Grandpa's haircut. I tell Grandpa I'll be back in a little while and go back outside. I want to go back to where the guy on the road was to see if he was really there and needed help or if I was imagining it. But I couldn't find the truck thing.

There were lots of little shops and alleys and little parking lots and neo-punk kids everywhere, and I just kept wandering around, looking for the damned truck thing. I feel like this part of the dream lasted for hours. At one point I was almost run over by an even weirder car thing that seemed to be sorta like a race car with its wheels flat to the ground. I saw several of these at different points in the dream and was terrified of being run over by one. They moved extremely quickly and erratically, and such a vehicle would really have no business being on the road in a civilized society. I got very lost and at one point wondered if I would even find the place where I had dropped Grandpa off.

I finally find the truck thing, and by that time it is late, and I feel guilty that I never made it to check the guy on the road and that my Grandpa has been waiting for hours. I go back in to collect him and it appears he has just been happily chatting with people. We go back to the truck thing, which is easily found this time, and I have trouble unlocking it. Finally it unlocks and we get in. For some reason there are a lot of passengers in it then. And I try to start the thing, and can't, and it's dark and I can't see the controls, which I didn't feel I completely understood to begin with. Suddenly we are sliding down an incline backwards at a very high speed. People are telling me to put on the emergency brake but I can't find it. The hill seems to go on forever. We've somehow gotten to a non-urban area, as I see a bunch of evergreen trees flying past. I think my Grandpa pulled the emergency brake, because I never did find it. Someone (Grandpa?) comments that you should become familiar with the controls of something before you try to drive it.

REAL LIFE:
I woke up with a horrible headache, which is unusual.

INTERPRETATION (via DreamMoods.com):
To see your grandparents in your dream, symbolize love, security, wisdom and protection.

A
dream haircut symbolizes a fresh start. You are shedding off some unwanted aspect of yourself.

To dream that you are at the hairdresser, implies that you are looking to change your attitude. You are ready for change and move in a different direction.

To see an Asian person in your dream, represents an aspect of your own self that is unknown to you. Additionally, to see an elderly Asian person, represents tradition, wisdom and knowledge.


To see a pick-up truck in your dream, represents hard work. You need to return to the basics. Alternatively, the dream may be a metaphor for something that you need to "pick up".

To dream about a blizzard, suggests that you are feeling emotionally cold and frigid. You feel excluded and left out. It may indicate a lack of love and the absence of warmth within your own family circle.

To dream that you are in parking lot, suggests that you need to slow down and take time from your daily activities.

To dream that you lose something, indicates that you may really have misplaced something that you had not realized yet. It may also be a signal for you to clean out and reorganize your life. Perhaps you are overwhelmed and distracted with the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life.Alternatively, losing something often coincides with a significant life change or waking issue.

To dream that you are searching for something, signifies the need to find something that is missing or needed in your life. The dream may be analogous to your search for love, spiritual enlightenment, peace or even a solution to a problem.

On a symbolic note, losing things in your dream suggests lost opportunities, past relationships or forgotten aspects of yourself. Your personal associations to the thing you lose will clue you into the emotional meaning and interpretation of your dream.

To see a race car in your dream, symbolizes your hard driving and headstrong attitudes. It may also reflect your competitive nature and the need to win.

To dream that you nearly escape from the impact of an automobile, denotes that you will successfully overcome any rivalry.


[From dream-dictionary.org] To dream of a lifeless corpse can represent a weakening state or a kind of death in your life that comes from devoting yourself to a miserable and lifeless routine.

To dream that you are walking or moving backwards, indicates that your current course of action may be counter-productive. Whatever you are looking for in life seems to be moving away from you. Thus, you may feel a sense of failure or belief that you are unable to achieve your goals and aspirations. On the other hand, moving backwards in your dream, indicate that you need to back off or retreat from a situation that you are currently facing in your waking life.

To dream that you are locked out, suggests that you are feeling alienated or unaccepted. You have difficulties getting in touch with your feelings. Consider what and where you are being locked out of.

OVERALL:
There seems to be some kind of message about being too random, as things in the dream seemed to be moving erratically and unpredictably. This is a recurring theme in my life. I have decided upon psychology and stuck with it (though I do still change my mind about specific career goals) but other aspects of my life, not so much. Where to live (changes weekly)... who to date or whether I even want to date or marry (changes hourly)... The truck thing seems to represent hard work, self-control and freedom. My Grandfather also symbolizes hard work, self-control and commitment (come to think of it, in the dream he frowned at me at the idea of not keeping the commitment of his appointment, hmm). My fear of commitment has something to do with a belief that it will limit my freedom. I re-watched High Fidelity last night, and the main character describes his former lack of committing to anything as "suicide. By tiny, tiny increments." Which I think is totally true. And I am one of those specific types of guys who has had trouble growing up, becoming mature. I think in the dream Grandpa meant I need to work on that before I try to have another relationship.
