The backstory: I drive a 2011 VW Jetta wagon. It’s blue, I love it, and it’s known to my family and me as “Little Blue.” VW keeps sending me invitations to get a new car and though I throw them away, I suppose they have planted themselves in my subconscious.
Me: I had a dream last night. I got a new car; a blue Buick station wagon. It was weird, because I was concerned it didn’t have enough trunk space. And the gear shift was on the steering column, old-school style. In the dream, I missed Little Blue.
T: A Buick? That wasn’t a dream, it was a nightmare.
Well okay then.
