Why I was at a nursing home in my dream is unknown. In order to increase the mobility of the residents of the home, they had small rugs that were slippery on the bottom. The could put their feet on the rugs and shuffle along.
Most of the dream consisted of a series of races. The residents would stand on the rugs, in some cases supporting their arms on lawn chairs. The race track was an inclined wooden plane that allowed a fair number of residents to race simultaneously. The last part of the dream was a race to break a tie between the two fastest racers, both of whom looked a little too young to be nursing home residents. I presume they were staff members who were also in the races.
