Characters: me, blond

I was waiting in line at some kind of food counter and saw an attractive blond girl who seemed to recognize me. She sidled up to me and I touched her, I was in some kind of awareness that I was dreaming.
me: "Um, hey, sorry is that ok?"
blond: (smiling) "I'm a uni."
me: "Uni what? Are you in some kind of... union?"
She didn't answer that.
blond: "Where are you from?"
me: "Um... the year 2000?"
blond: "Which part? Earth?"
me: "Yes."
Her smile disappeared.
blond: "That is not looked upon highly."
me: "Hey, well me neither, I didn't like it very much."
blond: "Well just because you're here now, this isn't because of anything about you... you just slipped through a crack in the fabric."
me: "Look, I'm not asking for anything. Please don't attack me. I just want to know how I got here, and what's going to happen to me in the future."
blond: "Well, there is a screening process."
We began walking through a very beautiful and refined mall-type environment, a classier version of the wacky and well done interiors of certain Vegas casinos.
blond: "Your world was too competive."
me: "You mean, com-pet-it-ive?"
blond: "Yes, a lot of contention for resources. Here hotel rooms are given out on a first-come, first-serve basis. For example. There are exceptions, but few."
me: "That sounds nice in theory, but what do you do when there are people who are pathological? The homeless who cannot or will not work?"
blond: (smiling) "I kill them."
me: "What?! You, personally, kill people just because they don't have homes?"
blond: "There are many military operations, I'm part of some."
me: "Well there has to be a better way! If you're all evolved and we're such dumb schmucks, can't you come up with something more elegant than extermination?"
I woke up kinda pissed off as we walked into a club-like area.

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?
