So in the middle of a cruise ship dream, I subtlety realized I was dreaming and said the two magic words. Now, at this point, I was like ok wtf I'm in a dream but I'm not fully lucid. I couldn't just take off or demand clarity. So I said well maybe if I shout I'm dreaming, BUT for some reason I was worried I would shout it outloud in my sleep and was worried I would make a fool of myself. So I tried to remember where I was or fell asleep at and not being able to I decided it wasn't a good idea lol.
So I literally followed the dream while awake in boringness before I woke up, this was my last dream out of 2 or 3.
Now, someone please explain to me how that happens.
