Dragons and Mockery

I had a dream last night, that I remembered fully when I woke, but quickly forgot. I knew I would, I even thought to myself, I should write this down before I forget. But I was still in bed, and writing it down would have taken an effort to leave my warm sheets, which I wasn't at the time willing to do. I only remember a couple details.

Dragons were involved somehow. I think I had a few, as pets or some kind of collection. My friend Dan said something that we made fun of him for, something like he didn't know I had dragons, and I was like, How could you miss that?

But most of the the thing is gone from me. Dreams have such a cotton candy consistency, so easily picked apart and dissolved in the morning dew.

Hopefully next time I'll have the presence of mind to both remember the dream and willingness to leave my bed to record it.

I like the cotton candy quote. I wrote it down in my book -- attributed to you, of coarse. By the way, I duct taped my book like I saw yours. I even made a little duct tape pen holder to go with it.

I can hardly think of a greater compliment than being quoted and copied by my big brother.

I had a childhood dream involving you and me and a dragon in the "garden". But it was more of a Pete's Dragon kind of dragon. Or a Reluctant Dragon (aside: what's with children's movies with friendly dragons?). That is one of only two childhood dreams I remember. The other involved bears on the mountain by the house, and luring them with Hershey's Chocolate Syrup.

I can't believe dan didnt know you had dragons. Silly dan.

That would have been pretty exciting if we had had bears on the mountain by the house when you were young.
