A fantastic question!

"In the dream where you show up to school naked, why do you never go swimming?"

My first response is that my school did not have a pool, and diving into the cafeteria spaghetti Au natural just seems a bit unsanitary. But then I really began to think about this question.

Obviously, this kind of dream has something to do with insecurity, and in a place where you can become exposed in front of people that know you. Otherwise, you might just be at the park, or Disney World, or anywhere. Not in front of your classmates. Now, I can't speak for anyone else, but when I had this dream, it was always at lunch. So I used to wonder why I (or no one else, for that matter) would notice I was not properly attired for the first four hours I was there. That is the aspect that would always confuse me. Not a single person would realize that I was missing vital protection from a draft until I went to get my lunch money out of my pockets. Does this mean that if you believe you are wearing clothes, you can sit next to your friends in the buff and they would never know? That's the real question, and one I would love for someone other than me to answer!

It's a bit like the emperors new clothes, no? I mean everyone was fine with it until some little kid pointed out he was naked.

Perception is reality, man!
