Ep. 2: The Envelopes

My most common dream construct is that I’m being chased. Being chased through houses, schools, terrorist attacks. I always wake up right as the capital T They are about to pounce. I jolt awake in bed, like in a movie, sitting up with a terrible, loud, intake of air. My wife will ask if I’m okay. I’ll tell her that I was having a horrible dream.

Were you being chased again? she’ll ask.

Yes, I will say.

Are you okay? she'll ask.

Yes, I will say.
