This is a dream sign twist. Usually I'll dream that I've forgot where I parked my car which is a strong sign for me that I must be dreaming. In this dream I'm with a childhood friend who had a reputation of being physically strong and brave. In the dream he has lost his car. So, we look at each other and say, "This must be a dream." Then we try a reality check of pulling on a finger to see if it will elongate. Nothing happens as usual and I leave the dream. What I see here is that some part of me, wanting to fulfill my lucid dream goals is taking the focus off of me, maybe as a sort of protective measure and putting it on my friend. The brave friend is telling me to be brave and go lucid.
