Recurring dream

I had another pool dream last night. I hate pool dreams. I dream about pools a lot. I used to work in pools. Years ago, I used to have a lot of dreams about delivering papers (I was a paperboy from year 7 to 10) but I guess the pool has taken over since I [...]


I just popped out for lunch for a while. I’m making myself do it now.
