I had just transitioned from one dream about escaping a large mansion, into this new dream that is located at my house.
I walked up the stairs and heard my dad was in the living room. It was a nice day outside so I wanted to take my dog for a walk. So I ask my dad for the keys to the truck, and he gives me a credit card that is still in its plastic case. I look up at him, then down back at the card and start laughing! I was laughing so hard I was barely able to say, "Dude, is this even real?!" As I asked the question I also did a nose RC
Realizing this is a dream, I turn to leave the house for an adventure! But as I'm about the open the door I remembered that I needed to give someone a present while lucid! So I turned to my dad and said, "Hey dad! I've got a present for you." He looks at me a little confused but says nothing. I look at my hand and try to make a present appear... nothing happens. So I put my hand behind my back, open my hand wider than the present will be, and image every detail of the present. (I imaged little penguins on the wrapping paper.) When I closed my hand, expecting the present to be there, I felt the weight of the gift I had just created from my mind! (The dream felt real after the creation of the present.) I hand the gift to my dad, he smiles and thanks me while he finds a seat. My dad sits he his comfy rocking chair and starts tearing away at the penguin wrapping paper. I am watching with curiosity because I didn't even try to visualize what was going to be in the gift, I left that up to the dream to decide. When he has the whole thing unwrapped, the box was actually just a bag of classic lays chips!
My dad turns to me to ask a question, but before he can talk I say, "You know you're not real right?"
My dad replied, "What? How could I not be real? I'm here right now am a not?"
I answer with an annoyance at the typical response he gave, "I don't have time to show you, just look around at your reality and you'll find out for yourself!" I grabbed my dog and left the house for whatever adventure awaited us.
I'm planning on finishing the dream in my dream journal later, nothing really happens though... I get to feel what a tree feels like in a dream and I create a truck so I can drive, then I wake up.
