I’m in a kitchen and everyone else is eating lemon meringue pie, or other pies and cakes, food that they’d all gone out and bought together, without me. I wanted some, too, but how could I ask for some when what was there was theirs, not mine? I even contemplate eating the leftovers on the saucers they put by the sink, crusts and half eaten pieces. But then on second look, I see they aren’t pie scraps at all but watermelon rinds with all the good fruit parts already eaten.
So what kind of symbolism can I see in this small, almost boring dream? They are eating. Do I use eating as a substitute for love? I was there and accepted by them, but not part of them. Did I want to eat lemon meringue pie or did I want to be part of them? Well, I think I know the answer to that. How do I get to be part of them? What should I do or not do? Who are they anyway?
Or…the dream could simply mean that I was hungry for lemon meringue pie.
