It's time for another round of "What's that mean, dream?!"
I am sitting with some of my family members, when suddenly a long line of people comes in and sits on their knees in two rows in front of me. It is all of M's family, come up from Mexico.
M emerges carrying lots of presents, because apparently it is Christmas.
He hands me a present, which turns out to be a children's book.
He says he can't wait to read with our children, and won't I do him the honor of marrying him?
Of course I am ecstatic and thrilled to pieces, sobbing all over the place.
But then I see that the engagement ring will only fit halfway down my finger.
M apologizes and says that he couldn't afford to buy the extra gold to make the ring big enough because he needs to save the money to send his family back to Mexico after the wedding.
He then jumps up and down and says "We're getting married now!"
And I am like, le duh we are engaged that's what that means.
To which he promptly says "No, we're getting married now."
And pulls me three feet to the left where a priest just happens to be waiting to do the honors right now.
Throughout the ceremony more and more bridesmaids keep showing up and I am confused as to who picked them, considering I've only known I was engaged for all of two minutes.
They are wearing puffy pink dresses circa 1981.
Halfway through M's vows, I see my favorite niece, love of my life, is my flower girl. I decide that I absolutely must at that moment stop and tell her just how much I love her and what a wonderful little girl she is.
To which M is like yo...can you focus on our vows please?
Then I wake up.
What's that mean, dream?
To dream of a proposal suggests that an existing situation is about to take a turn for the worse.
A wedding represents a change or transition in your current life, as well as your issues about independence and commitment. It also usually highlights feelings of bitterness, sorrow or death (I thought this was a happy occasion to look forward to...sheesh!)
To dream of a person from Mexico (I tell no lies, dreammoods.com is an exhaustive list of all symbols!) represents the preservation of tradition, family, faith and culture.
HOLY SH*T DON'T GET MARRIED.
But preserve all the good things Mexico represents, like family (even though your family won't be expanding since you're not getting married, bitter 23 year old.).
