Very Weird Dream -- Driving, Sleeping Pill

Today I woke up early and wanted to go back to sleep for an hour or so. Apparently I did. In my dream, I was very, very tired. I was driving around and was barely able to keep my eyes open. I was driving around the retail district in my city, but I was approaching the stores from the back, on the side street. I entered the grocery store from the alley. I don't remember what I did at the grocery store in the dream.

The next thing I knew, I was home waking up (so I was sleeping in my dream?) and I knew that I was dreaming because I was stepping out of bed onto the carpet we had in our house 20 years ago. Since it was a dream, I tried to conjure up a lot of non-counterfeit money, but it didn't work.

Then I took a sleeping pill, but instead of swallowing it the usual way, I put it in my drink and drank the drink. I realized I was holding a paper cup of hot chocolate, like you would get from a vending machine. Where did I get that? I don't have paper cups at home. Had I gotten that at the store? I also realized I had taken a whole pill when I only wanted to take half a pill. I tried coughing to bring the pill back but I realized that wouldn't work, and inducing vomiting was completely out of the question. So I decided I would just have to sleep it off.

When I woke up for real, I thought I had gotten the extra sleep I wanted, but I was still tired.
