    Nope, and this was definitely a voice in my own head, Bobby was asleep.

    For some reason, I had a dream that Trump was getting married to his daughter, Ivanka. I was in charge of handling the shoes, which were checked in like jackets.The bride was late because she parachuted into the reception. I have no idea what any of it means.

    A handful of days ago I saw a person in public who looked, to me, just like @GHoosdum . Last night, I had a dream that Ghoosdum was taking me for a ride in an old car. He was explaining to me that the reason he buys old cars is for the old style interior. They remind him of his childhood and when he was happy, and that I should also be buying old cars for the same reason.

    Sometimes @GHoosdum just buys car parts for an excuse to drive to Chicago for awesome pizza.

    This is commendable

    Finally got that dream job at (rocket company). Turns out they have the contract for what's left of the nuclear missile silos in the country. Mkay, kinda like babysitting but seems like a no-brainer revenue source, given what we do.

    One such field of silos is near to the building where I'll be working, so my new boss offers to show me around. Kinda creepy to see a dozen of these steel domes and concrete pads spaced around the property, knowing the destruction that's underneath them, but it's a nice day for a golf cart ride. It's closed off, but not actively guarded by more than a guard jeep. Nothing anyone can really do from up here.

    Across the field, see a bunch of people from the nearby highway who apparently jumped the fence and are running up the hill to look at the same domes I am? Seems kinda stupid, there's nothing to look at and they're surely going to prison for it.

    Boss reaches for his radio, but we see security somewhat-hurriedly already on the way. Enough to be imposing, but nothing crazy. We start driving to the group to see what their problem is. Get out a ways away and start walking towards them a bit to observe their conversation with Security.

    A bright light halfway to the horizon from a rocket exhaust plume. I hadn't seen the rocket body from this far away, but for sure know what it is. I don't remember what site that is. It looks like there was a launch scheduled and these fools chose the wrong hill to climb to see it. Idiots.

    But at least I get a nice view, wouldn't otherwise be allowed out here. The fence was marked, but they probably didn't expect there to be a flat plateau up here with all these domes that close to them.

    Then another launch from that same far-away site. I think sometimes they do that? Now another. I'm alarmed. My site's klaxon snaps on, surprisingly weaker than I'd expect a half-second before the explosive bolts on the concrete slabs blow loudly and the covers slide to the side. The loud whine of a dozen more hydraulic pumps heard as steel domes the size of hinge out of the way across the field, slamming the huge lids open and locked at a weird angle.

    There's barely time to think 'oh fu-' and start scrambling to exit the silo field as the ground vibrates, hard. There's clearly no exit, now that the domes are upright and any paths out are obviously too close to them. I can barely keep my footing running towards the nearest edge of the field. The path will take me directly past one of the silos, but Ihave to choose and there's no time for another option.

    I don't make it five steps towards it before a large nosecone starts rising out of the tube 100 feet in front of me, backlit by orange from an unseen fire below. I know I'll be killed by the exhaust in seconds if I can't get away. I don't have time to get past and clear it. The sounds from the field have now deafened me, I can feel the noise threatening to tear the molecules in my body apart. There's nowhere to take cover, the only protrusions from the plateau being the silo covers themselves

    I turn to find another exit and see more cones rising, some close, some further. I see midway down the field a nosecone falling back into its silo off-kilter, a launch failure. I don't know what will happen first - blown apart by pressure and fire of the nearest rocket's engine now halfway exited its tube, or incinerated by a fallout-laden propellant explosion or premature nuclear explosion from the failed launch.

    The air around me grows opaque with an unnatural intensity of brightness as I desperately panic about how to prevent my death in the next few seconds, only to survive until hit by the other side's weapons, and then I woke up.

    And it was 4:07am. I checked Reddit to make sure it wasn't really happening...and eventually got back to sleep. Eventually.

    Woke up in the middle of the night after having this dream and I managed to remember it and was able to write it down.

    I'm accompanying a woman around the street who's vlogging (with a RED camera in some sort of backpack harness). We're being followed by another woman and we reach a subway station. We miss the train and go to some ground-level waiting area

    The three of us observe a pickpocket and we try to box him in. At the same time a prisoner that's being escorted happens to be there and makes a run for the balcony (guess we're not on the ground level) during the commotion. Due to trying to box-in the pickpocket, I'm closest to the balcony. Prisoner jumps the balcony to safety.

    At that point cutscenes had been previously playing of a spaceship flight. No specifics.

    I see an immensely bright yellow or golden light in the sky that outshines everything else. I assume it's the spaceship crashing and think that this prisoner has incredible pull to be able to down a spaceship to facilitate an escape.

    Spaceship crashes causing a huge blast and I guess I go unconscious. Images start rapidly changing like the Marvel intro. I think we're going to join the fight against Thanos (I haven't seen Endgame).

    When I come to I'm in a processing queue. We're superheros, but haven't been assigned and character yet. I recognize most people but they're just focused on the process of selection.

    Line goes through a 2-level book store designed kinda like a maze. Think a job fair.

    I see James Spader walking around like he's the head of things.

    Time for the lottery I see people in different color shirts run off to their respective corners with their same colors and hit a button all excited. They were assigned a character. People continue to run and hit their buttons.

    My turn, I hit my button and get assigned something character I perceived to be beneath me so I stormed out.

    This is my favorite part.
