Last night I had a dream where I was on a bus of some sort, and a character across from me resembled someone that I used to ride the school bus with when I was about 14 or 15 years old. I've always been fascinated by lucid dreaming and have tried many "tricks" to become fluent in the language of lucid dreams, but most of the time still find them sparked by moments like this where I will just suddenly realize that the moment I am in makes no logical sense. This was one of those moments. I suddenly realized that I rarely rode on a bus, nor had I seen this figure in years, and it became apparent that I was dreaming. I became very excited and thought of all the fun I could have, but suddenly a larger question overtook me. I decided to ask the dream figure what it was like to be a character in "my" dream. I have ALWAYS wanted to do this in my waking life. He smiled, laughed slightly, and simply said: "You tell me."
