Almost everyone seems to have had anxiety dreams about school. There's a test and you haven't studied for it—indeed, you've never even been to class, and you haven't bought the books, either. You can't find your locker, or you can find your locker but you can't remember the combination.
Professors have their own versions of the school-anxiety dream: There's a classroom of students waiting to take a test, but the professor hasn't written the exam yet. Or the professor has no pants on, or is about to lecture on a topic he or she knows nothing about.
Well, this morning I awoke in a nervous state as a result of a new twist on the school-anxiety dream: I dreamed that Ben was enrolled in two schools at the same time, but he hadn't ever gone to one of them. How would he pass kindergarten at a school he'd never attended?? Oh, the maternal angst I felt! School anxiety by proxy.
Next thing you know, I'll start having those "unsuitable toilet" dreams on Ben's behalf, too.
