As if I had been to that school before, even for a visit or a course, I might have seen her before and factored that into my dream reasoning.

I'm trying to debunk myself! I'm sick of inadequate wooly woo answers as I don't believe them.

Holy {!#%@}, man. I just had another prophetic dream.

Last night I dreamt I was putting ointment on one of my daughter's injuries. Today at the kid swap the missus tells me one has developed a nasty rash and hands me a tube of ointment.

Nah... That's just... That's just too specific.

Comb your memory - no mention of anything out of the ordinary prior?

I once got on a very busy train here and rode the distance of several stations before the person seated in front of me got off, allowing me to take the seat. I then continued to ride thru maybe 5 or more stations before noticing that the person I was sitting next to was my son. He too had failed to see me standing in front of him, or when I took the seat. I was probably reading a newspaper, and he a book.

You'd never make a specially trained ops agent hit man. You probably didn't notice how many packages the fifth person who got onboard at the third stop had either. In the trade....thats called mince meat.
