Characters: me, them, old lady

I was in an old-school store that was packed with products, and the sales ladies were older women. It was something like a Walgreens, though there was a real red-theme going on with the interior. They were having a conversation about what conglomerate owned their store as well as Ralph's, and I want to say it was something like "Greenway".
me: "It will be interesting to see who owns the chain. I'll check it out when I wake up."
There was a deli counter of some sort and I sat down at it. Another older woman was sitting there, I tried writing my name on a piece of paper for her. She and someone else looked at it.
them: "You've written all numerics."
I tried sounding my name out in halting phonetics, and they seemed to pick it up...repeating it to me all as one word.
old lady: "Did you meet the angel of light? She was looking for you."
me: "I haven't. I'd be surprised if anyone could find anyone in this madhouse."
old lady: "This body I'm in just has so many limitations, I can't stand it."
me: "I'm not used to treating bodies like cars and jumping from one into another."
She got up to go into the bathroom and seemed to change into a much younger woman as she did.

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?
