I dreamed of being a cop. I was doing cop stuff, and suddenly I remembered serving time in prison, and I hoped the other cops wouldn't find out and kick me off the force. Then the dream flashed back to said prison sentence, and while of course it's nowhere I've been in real life, I'm sure it was the same jail I've dreamed about serving time in before many times, including this one I blogged three years ago.
It's always a bit weird when separate dreams link up like that. It's not just this jail; there are specific settings and locations which I've never been to in reality, but are often revisited in dreams and which I recognize having "been" before whether the dream is lucid or not. But for the dream narrative itself to link up like that is even weirder.
