It was only a dream

I don't remember people's faces in my dream unless they're friends of mine.

I was staying in a house with a tiny, 10x40 (maybe) backyard. My host said there were a lot of bats so I went outside to see if I could find any. Someone else was back there and he showed me a bat that was hanging inside the eave. It was gigantic. Then I noticed they had buried themselves under the stepping stones and gravel in the garden. So I freaked out and said we had to kill them - chop them up and bury them under human organs.

Next scene I'm in a car driving to BK with someone else, and a homeless kid in the car. He gets out and we continue to get burgers. We decide to get one for the homeless kid and while we're out looking for him I run into David & Laurea who are trying to exchange a watch he got for her, this really huge silver watch. I gasp when I see it and pull the same exact one out of my pocket.

Then the alarm rang.

What dream dictionaries say about bats:
1. Awful is the fate of the unfortunate dreamer of this ugly animal. Sorrows and calamities from hosts of evil work against you. Death of parents and friends, loss of limbs or sight, may follow after a dream of these ghoulish monsters. A white bat is almost a sure sign of death. Often the death of a child follows this dream.

2. To see bats in your dream, symbolizes uncleanness, demons, and annoyances. Alternatively, bats represent rebirth. You need to let go of old habits. Your current path is not compatible with your new growth and new goals. It may also mean that you are blindly entering into a situation or deal. You need to evaluate the facts more carefully. The dream may also been a pun on feeling "batty" or feeling crazy.

To dream of a white bat, signifies death of a family member. To dream of a black bat, signifies personal disaster.

To see a vampire bat in your dream, represents that a person in your life may be draining your of self-confidence and/or your resources.

According to Chinese folklore, if you see five bats in your dream, then it symbolizes good health, longevity, pace, wealth, and happiness.

GREAT. So since I'm hacking the bats to pieces does that mean I'm sabotaging my chances at good health, longevity, pace, wealth and happiness? Or fighting the chance of a personal disaster?

* To dream of a watch, denotes you will be prosperous in well-directed speculations. To look at the time of one, your efforts will be defeated by rivalry. To break one, there will be distress and loss menacing you.
* To drop the crystal
of one, foretells carelessness, or unpleasant companionship. For a woman to lose one, signifies domestic disturbances will produce unhappiness. To imagine you steal one, you will have a violent enemy who will attack your reputation.
* To make a present of one, denotes you will suffer your interest to decline in the pursuance of undignified recreations.

you cant go by a dream dictionary because its so vague. if you look up bears in a dream dictionary it might say it means introspection and depression, or healing oneself.. But depends on what you saw in your head.. was it a scary bear eating people? was it a nice teddy bear that you were cuddling with.. was it a big hairy gay man in a leather harness... all could mean different things.. how can you quantify that? as you discovered, bats mean different thigns in different cultures.
You have such vivid dreams.. what are you eating before you go to bed? lol
