Jack: Mom, can we meet each other tonight in our dreams and play all night?
me: Good idea! Let’s try it!
Jack: I don’t know how to actually DO it though…
me: Okay, I’ll come find you and tap you on the arm. If it’s the middle of the night, then you’ll know it’s a dream right?
Jack: Ha ha! Yeah, you get me then we can go and play. I want to go to the bowling alley.
me: I think they’ll be closed.
Jack: Mom…the DREAM bowling alley will be open.
me: Oh yeah! Didn’t really think about that. (I tap him on the arm)
me: This is a dream and I’m waking you up to come play with me.
Jack: (puzzled look on his face) Huh? No it isn’t a dream yet!
me: How do you know you’re not sleeping right now?
Jack: (punches me in the arm)
me: OW!!! Hey!!
Jack: Ha ha ha! See? In a dream it wouldn’t hurt.
me: We’ll just see about that…
