I dreamed I had a dog. A huge, white fur dog that slept in the laundry room. It looked at me with big eyes and rested itself against me. I hugged it until we fell asleep.
When I woke up, I had missed the deadline to turn in my research paper and forgotten to take my friend to her final exam.
I just want a dog.
