Mother/Son Bonding

The night before last, I dreamed that my identity was stolen.

I was visiting a foreign city, and accidentally left my luggage sitting in a semi-public room. I returned to find that everything important - papers, credit cards, ID - had been taken.

The rest of the dream consisted of me worrying myself in circles. Someone was charging Gucci shoes and applying for student loans, all with my personal information! I had no list of what was in my wallet, and no way to be sure I could call and cancel everything. But, of course, I had no phone numbers to call, since the numbers are on the cards. Also, I had no ID to prove who I am. And no ticket home. And no money. Where to begin?

Iain must have known I was having a nightmare. He's so empathetic. So loving.

How did he deliver me from my dreams? He sacrificed his own sleep, screaming his head off and waking me up at 5:40am.

Isn't that lovely?

[Last night, I dreamed that I cleared my inbox down to 7 emails. I kept looking at the scroll bar on the right, enjoying how big it was. Iain knew this, too, I think, because this morning he slept until 7!]

Did Iain divulge any plans whereas I would receive an A on my History test and a modest, oh say a C on my Astronomy test, both of which are conveniently scheduled on Wednesday?

Whatever he can manage would be much appreciated.

(P.s I am glad the identity problem was in fact a dream.)

As far as I can tell, Iain's super-hero powers extend to:

A) Knowing what you're dreaming


B) Saving you from bad dreams by waking you up ungodly early.

If either of those is helpful, I'm sure he'd be happy to oblige. It's good to see that you have reasonable goals: in my opinion, any passing grade in astronomy is a success. In history, you should definitely get an A.

Well, he is young. Over time I feel confident his powers will continue to blossom. For now, he is doing the right things.

If I manage to squeek a C out of the class in Astronomy, it will be just short of a miracle. I do believe those were the words of the intstuctor.

History will be a piece of cake this time (new instructor and Fiona!!)

What a sweet boy you have there!
