I Had a Dream

By Cyberquill • 11/05/2011 • 20 Comments

Most of my nocturnal dreams I don’t remember at all, and the few that do linger in my consciousness upon waking generally don’t lend themselves to verbal recounting due to excessively convoluted plot lines. …

You are my favorite visitor. Absent nonverbal clues, you have no way of knowing whether I’m being sincere, sarcastic, affectionately teasing, polite in a perfunctory way, or none of the above.
