Dream World on Anti-Malaria Meds

One of the listed side effects for the malaria medication I was taking in South America was vivid dreams ( That turned out to be fabulously true in my case. The dreams were so great, I am wondering if my doctor will prescribe me some more pills when I get home.

I made the mistake of not writing down the notes of these dreams when I woke up, so I can’t relate most of them, but I did wake up one morning on my ship taking me from Brasil to South Africa and jotted down a few notes from the last of them, as I was to switch to another type of anti-malarial in Africa.

One of my friends, I could not either recognize or remember whom, was telling me about their previous trip to South Africa. She was standing over a table on which was what appeared to be a board game, though there weren’t any pieces on the board. The board was a map of the world, like a Risk board. As she gestured towards the South Africa on the map she said:

“As you roll the two dice to see if you can enter South Africa, you should scream ‘Hello Grand' mum – you should have worn more eye shadow!!’”

I picked the dice, rolled them, and made a last second decision to audible to rouge instead. Gotta do it on my terms, of course. I rolled a 5 and a 3 and was permitted entry.

I thanked the official in the three piece suit that had appeared to grant me entry and turned back to thank my friend for her advice. She was gone.

I took malarone. No side effects but man it is expensive. Like $8.50 per pill! Thank goodness I didn't need too many.
