Of Dreams and Such

Scene: Papa and Nora laying back on the bed in the morning. Papa's ready to leave for a day of student evaluations and course scheduling. Nora is still in her nightgown and pigtails, but smiling and sunny.

PAPA: So what's on your mind these days Nora?

NORA: I've been thinking about if my dreams will come true.

PAPA: What dreams?

NORA: The dreams I don't tell anyone about.

I guess there are some things that not even Papas can know about.

Precious. Jake told Josh today at breakfast when he was asked what he dreamed last night, "Nothing. But that's good, cause I only have nightmares." I found this very sad.
