The latest Corrie characters making appearances in my dreams are Joe Carter (parental guidance recommended) Sean Tully (I was his fag hag) Tyrone Dobbs (I was MC at his wedding) and Gail Platt. Admittedly, Gail was more of a nightmare. Corrie writer Daran Little has had a few cameo roles as well.
Just when I’m thinking I may have to enter therapy to sort through all this, I find that over the pond, our Geoff has been dreaming of Corrie too:
“Coronation Street extras become central to the plot. Regular cast members become extras. The new stars spend all day in the Rovers getting extremely drunk.”
I recommend reading more of Geoff’s dream material at Geoff’s Dream Blog.
Here’s another bloke who dreamed about Ken Barlow jumping out of a toolbox.
So I’m somewhat relieved to know that I’m not alone in my nocturnal visions. And thanks to The British Cheese Board, I know which crumb of cheese to eat before retiring to bed to ensure sweet dreams.
Perhaps all these Corrie dreams are the Universe’s way of telling me I need a vacation. That’s it! I’ll go away for a while. Stop blogging. No Corrie. Stop reading The Sun. (I’ll probably develop a case of the DTs.)
Until that time, Corrie Canuck readers, let me know if you too dream of Corrie.
