I awake with a start when the Mathematician comes back into the bedroom to get dressed after his shower:
"I just had the craziest dream," I tell him.
"I had weird dreams, too. I bet yours weren't as weird as mine."
"Mr.T was in it and I was really pissed at him," I say, rubbing my eyes as I sit up. "We got into a huge fight."
"A fight with Mr. T, huh? I bet I know who won that battle."
"No way, man," I say, "I was winning. I threw a pile of junk mail at his head. What was yours?"
"It was about the moral struggle I felt when I hired a hermaphrodite as an intern at work, and was then forced to fire...uh, them...because they weren't competent. I didn't want them to think it was because of...you know..."
"Hermaphrodite discrimination? Yeah, that's pretty weird. That all you got?" I say.
"No. That happened, then I introduced George [the owner of Giorgiana's] to my dad and they started wrestling. Playfully."
I'm still not sure who won.
