The most common analysis is that I'm afraid to look foolish, either in my actions or my appearance. Yeah, that hits the mark pretty close. That's why I got the braces in the first place. I want to have pretty teeth and not occasionally unintentionally whistle when air passes through the gap in my front two teeth. (It happens more than I like to admit.)
|Me before the braces.|
Another theory went into menopausal women and I just stopped reading. I am not menopausal. No, really. I'm not that old yet. I'm just cranky.
|Stop. We're not going there.|
The last (hopefully) applicable source said that dreaming of losing teeth is tied to receiving money and the tooth fairy legend. You know, your tooth falls out, you put it under your pillow and the tooth fairy brings you some dough. And if the tooth fairy looked like this, I'd pull my teeth myself to get to meet him:
|The Rock as the Tooth Fairy. A myth I could really sink my teeth into.|
I like the idea that this weird dream is a premonition of coming into money. But not at the expense of my teeth. I don't want to have to spend any potential windfall on dentures.
What's your weirdest dream? (And just to be clear, this isn't my weirdest dream, it's just my most recent weird dream.)
