Max dangerously out of my control
In the first we're on a rickety, cartoonish roller coaster. It has not safety bars to keep you in. Max is standing up on her seat as we crest a hill and I'm desperately yelling for her to sit down. She won't listen. We go over the hill and she is out of the car, I grab her and am struggling to hold on to her while keeping myself in the cart.
In the second dream we're hiking, I think at camp, and I'm calling to Max that she's getting to far ahead. She is ignoring me, and suddenly there is a big cat, like a mountain lion, in front of her. I hiss at it, and pick up some rock to throw at it. It's closer to Max than I am. Then there's several big cats, including a black panther which starts chasing Max, and I'm chasing it. Somehow it doesn't catch her. I wake up after catching up with her myself.
