I had a dream last night that I'd thought I'd share with you.

As it opened I was back in my high school English class. Instead of my original
teacher, I had Robin Williams explaining that Charles Dickens invented the
modern novel. Just as Robin stood up on his desk and started to explain that
"A Tale of Two Cities" was written as a weekly serial in a magazine and made
up as Dickens when along, I was transported 35 years into the future.

The first thing I noticed was the gum I was chewing. It was the kind I liked -
it must have come back into style. As I looked around, I saw that I was now
teaching a class of high school students. I looked at the titles on the
textbooks I saw "Understanding Modern American Video Literature." I watched
myself say "As we were discussing yesterday, Twin Peaks was the first instance
of modern video literature. Now how did Frost/Lynch use fire as a means of
elucidating their theme?". As I said the word elucidate an owl behind me
started chanting "elOOOcidate,elOOOcidate". I turned back to the class and
saw that they had all turned into Leland.

At this point I woke.
