Drinking Straw Blowing Competitions

I was in a competition where you had to blow a drinking-straw wrapper high in the air (by tearing off the paper at the bottom, and blowing through the straw). To qualify for the contest, you had to donate a bunch of candy to charity and place it in a large grey trash bin. I only had enough to get one straw, which I shot as far as I could and it hit the second target.
girl: "Wow, congratulations! That was a great shot. Unfortunately, not enough to win a prize..."
Believing myself to be awake, I began searching to try and find information on the internet about these straw-blowing competitions. Finding several pages on the topic, I believed I had the necessary information to know where the dream had taken place. But the web browser decayed into a drawer, with a lot of objects in it, including an envelope and some 3 and 4 cent stamps.
I stuffed some random items from the drawer into the envelope, and wrote my name and address on it. Then I started sticking all the stamps I could find on it. It felt a bit like something was trying to claw up my body, but I ignored it and made my way out to the front of the house I was in.
Putting the mail into the mailbox, I shut it, and raised the "Mailbox contains mail" red flag. After a little victory-dance, the environment around me started to play like a movie in fast-forward. The mailman wouldn't take the letter, and the box was sealed shut. Suddenly the mail service started delivering packages of trivial pursuit cards--an unstoppable amount of them--which bricked in the house and created a giant wall around it.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
