When the nightmare is actually waking up to reality.

Reverse nightmares are usually followed by the chest-crushing realization that it was all just a dream and the dreamer must readjust, yet again, to the grim reality of waking life.

The most common of these events usually deal with someone's permanent absence (whether through death or break-up).
''I was dreaming mom was still alive and everything had been a huge mix-up.''
''God, I hate those kinds of reverse nightmares... they just make it that much harder to get over the pain.''

The mentally intricate and stresstospheric process of estimating how much gas there is still in the tank when there is no way to tell for certain because:

A. the fuel gauge does not work

B. it’s reached the point where the tank is so empty, it is pointless to look at the needle for any real information

C. Gastimating may also be resorted to when the gauge does work but there are no more funds for refilling the vehicle, thus the import of the Gastimate hinges in figuring out as closely as possible how far it may go / how long you may remain in a motor-engine transportable condition with the amount of fuel available. After said combustible liquid is used up, the prior means of transportation magically transforms into a simple sheltering mechanism, protecting against the elements but useless in other ways until gastoration occurs.

Gastimating properly is an essential survival talent or technique, particularly when driving at night through cities that do sleep and long stretches of empty roads.
"Your gastimate was incorrect, sorry to say. We're officially stranded in the middle of nowhere."

A friend who hangs around only as long as you can provide what he or she cannot (or would rather not) provide for him or herself. This is the friend who is always lamenting their lack of money and makes you feel a certain level of pressure when the time comes to pay for lunch or other entertainment you've shared. This feeling can go as far as a feeling of guilt for being well-off (or not so necessitated) yourself and you may end up offering this person money to help them out. However, the welfareweather friend never pays back and their situation never seems to improve.
friend: "Should we invite Carmen to lunch with us?"
you: "I'd rather not have to pay for her today."
friend: "Yeah, that's true. And we'd have to pay for her kids' lunch too, for sure"
you: "Whenever I tell her I can't invite, she says no to everything. She's a welfareweather friend."
