Actually, a pretty standard dream. If it were my dream, I would think it addresses either you still feel vulnerable (exposed) because of your high school experience.

I tend to have ones where I am in college, trying to find my class for either the first day of school or for my final.

I would think it addresses either you still feel vulnerable (exposed) because of your high school experience.

But I guess I've managed to turn my insecurities upside-down

You have to admit though, bssc, the walking on her hands part is an interesting variation.

Or perhaps you are putting your best foot forward?

BTW, nothing to confess here. I confessed enough for two lifetimes as a fifties Catholic teenager.

I have to confess to lying at confession. It was 1963 and everyone in my class was Catholic except me. They were all going to confirmation classes and got a dime to buy a snack on the way. I was a little mercenary and I wanted desperately to be Catholic so I could get the dime, white dress, and presents.

So I went to confession. My best friend told me that I just needed to make up some sin. It seems I went overboard. I confessed to a bank robbery. The next thing I know the priest is screaming and chasing me as I run out of the church and down what seemed like an endless set of steps. He was yelling that he knew my red-headed devil brothers and he was going to tell my mother. I cursed my red hair. But he never did call my mother.

As a kid, mother dragged me to church, had to do weekly confessions. According to the priest behind the screen there was no such thing as an innocent kid. So I invented sins, for which he dutifully assigned the proper absolutions.

Figure I could commit sins for the next 50 years and still have credit.

Oh no...
I chalked up more of the same in 12 years Catholic school as a 70's teenager.
A baton was obviously passed - but who here was the 60's Catholic teenager?
Now class, you MUST raise your hand first if you want me to call on you.

The hail mary could be a great move for your portfolio right now. Sell everything and buy a bunch of cheap out of the money calls. Go long!!!

I'm not Catholic, but I was born and raised one. Let's just say my wife nailed a few theses to the door of my condo when she first moved in with me...
