So here’s a challenge for anyone who claims to be able to read meaning into dreams:

Walking back to my apartment. Go in, it smells of smoke — turns out a hob was left on, and burnt some food. I turn it off. To get rid of the smell, I open a bunch of windows. They all have different window-opening devices, which all have short phrases written on — from inspirational quotes to adverts.

To be clear, the whole “house is on fire” thing was a minor part — the main focus was the window handles. Does this have some profound meaning?
