What does “o.k.” mean anyway?

Ed: So, how did you sleep?
Me: O.k., I guess.
Ed: I’m glad to hear that.
Me: Well, I DID dream that we were in the room during an armed robbery and that someone was killed, so that was kind of disturbing.

What does it say about my overall quality of sleep when an “o.k.” night’s sleep includes a dream about being in a room during an armed robbery in which someone is killed? Not much good, I’m guessing.

    I love the strange dreams I have! I feel like I’ve had a decent night’s sleep if it’s been an odd one 🙂
    Maybe I’m just strange though… 😉

    Sometimes I don’t mind them, but they often mean I’m working through anxiety of some sort. Not that I think that particular dream means anything, but you know what I mean. 🙂

    You cannot control your dreams, for the most part. So marvel at them. Enjoy them. Laugh at them. But don’t worry about them. They’re just dreams, after all.

    Yeah, just dreams… not worried about them. 🙂

    Ugh, I hate having dreams like that. I always get shot, or chased, or killed… I need to stop watching crime shows before bed.

    See — I DON’T watch crime shows. Imagine what would happen if I did! 🙂

    It’s better than you being killed in someone elses dream 😉

    We have a little convenience store nearby that I can’t go in because my youngest sister had such a dream… lol. It’s easy to humor her in that regard since there is another convenience store right across the street from the bad one.

    Very true, JC. Very true. 🙂 You’re a good big brother to avoid the bad store.

    Had to read the comments to see if anyone knew the answer…

    I had someone from the UK comment in response to my Flashback Friday asking where we got the word “bangs” from. Apparently they call them “fringe”. Makes you wonder!

    I think there IS no answer for that question. 🙂

    I find it fascinating all the different words for the same things. Some aren’t hard to figure out (cell phone=mobile in England, for instance), but lots of them take a bit of thinking on.
