Sensible shoes 

In my dream I am standing on top of a skyscraper with my youngest sister. I think to myself that it is a good job I do not have vertigo in this dream. I don't actually suffer from it in real life, but in dreams I often find myself lying prostrate and petrified on top of a building, afraid to stand up. Read into that what you will.

In my dream, my sister is going to give me my first flying lesson. We are trainee superheroes.

We run across the rooftop hand in hand and then soar into the air. It's a pleasant feeling, but all the same I find it rather frustrating, because I sense that I'm not really going fast enough, that I'm losing momentum, and it will be over too quickly.

What really does impair my enjoyment is the fact that I am wearing a pair of very inappropriate slip on shoes with kitten heels, which are in the process of slowly slipping off, finally dangling precariously from my curled toes, a ticking time bomb which could kill a pedestrian far below in an instant.

I wake up thinking that next time I dream about being a superhero, I'll make sure I have sensible lace-up shoes on.
