I've started taking melatonin as a sleeping aid, not every night, but when I remember. I should probably be taking something for my memory too.
More and more vivid dreams are reportedly a side effect of melatonin use, and that seems to be the case for me. So far, I have had the following dreams on the popular hormone. In the first, I was a student a Hillsdale College who had skipped three weeks of a class on real number theory taught by Glenn Beck. He was not happy with me. The entire college looked like a reconstruction of Oxford, but under construction. Walking across campus, I saw a beautiful woman who looked like the young Shirley McClain. In the second one, I was part of a cadre of superheros, but evil ones. We seemed to be destroying a city. In our group was the Millenium Falcon, with a mind of its own, I guess. Unfortunately, a group of good superheroes showed up, and were fixing to blow us up, along with the part of the city we were busy destroying. It looked like Chicago. Bad superhero that I was, I fled and hid. Finally, I dreamnt I was refinancing my house, through a mortgage broker who was, in fact, Satan, as indicated by his shiny red skin, horns and macaw like beak. The interest rate was good, but I felt sure there was something wrong with the transaction.
