A conversation with one of my best friends from college earlier this week:
Her: I had a dream the other night about Dude. I think our friends were visiting your parents’ house or something, and someone was sitting in Dude’s favorite spot (I don’t know if he has one, my brain made this up)… And Dude asked them to move and you all were really excited that he did that! Anyway, Dude is learning even in my subconscious, apparently!!!
