Shelley: Huh! Oh my God. John. John, are you awake?

John: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz….

Shelley: I just had a nightmare. And I checked my pulse. It’s really low. Shouldn’t my pulse be high if I had a nightmare?

John: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz….

Shelley: Why isn’t it high? Holy S@#$! It’s because I had wine for supper, then took a sleeping pill at bedtime. Good thing I woke up. I could have died like… like….. now what in the Hell was his name?

Shelley: Oh well. It doesn’t matter. Want to know what my nightmare was about, John? John? John! Wake up!

John: Jesus Christ Shelley! Shhhhhhhhhh. You’ll wake Babs (John’s sister) and Brian (brother-in-law.)
