The world is about to be overrun with menacing dinosaur-like monsters. It’s understood I am a superhero along with a few other fellow people with particular skills and powers. Most of us can use the bullwhip real well creating unique electrical reactions when used the right way. Most of the dream is spent traveling from city to city seeking out where the monsters will attack. Along the way I run into different problems – battling fellow anti-heroes – dealing with car issues.

I make it to the big city and meet up with a fellow super hero. We take this special elevator, which looks just like a bathroom inside. The people riding it with us seem to be drunk party goers. Nobody cares about using the wall-less stalls. A big-breasted girl takes a liking to me and keeps pressing her boobs against my face. This becomes a distraction to the bigger cause. We can feel the elevator move in awkward directions – not only does it go up and down but sideways too.

We make it to the top floor of a skyscraper where there happens to be a McDonald’s. My friend and I scour out the rooftop looking across the city for any sign of the monsters. I can see smoke billowing up in the sky where accidents have happened. It feels like a water park up here. There’s an intricate maze of stairs and balconies built around a fountain. Suddenly I spot a green dino-monster poke his head out of the water in the distance. He’s looking right at me. I run around looking for the best spot to face him. Meanwhile, more dinos start slithering out of the water through the staircases. They seem friendly the closer they get to me, almost like a brontosaurus. I caress my hand on top of one’s head. Running up the stairs I attempt to jump on top of one with intention of riding out to face the sinister dinos but I get caught up trying to put on vinyl gloves that won’t fit. In the moment it seems important to be wearing these gloves to help me grip the back of the dino. I lose my chance and I continue on without my new monster friends.
