I Am Not Michael Jackson

Characters: me, her

I was in bed with a girl in a dream, who resembled someone I know.
me: "All right. Now I need you to answer these questions as honestly as possible. They may sound silly, but I need your perspective."
her: "Ok."
me: "What is my name?"
her: "Michael Jackson."
me: "What is your name?"
She said some nonsense words, which made me laugh a bit. I decided to ignore that.
me: "Nevermind. What year is it?"
her: (confused) "29?"
me: "I'm used to year ranges that go something like four digits. To give you an example, my concept of the year is 2006."
her: "Oh, you're not asking your age. You're asking the date."
me: "Yes, the date."
her: "In our time most of the music has no name."
me: "Okay, that's pretty useless. But let me break this down for you the way I see it. Michael Jackson is a famous celebrity, once he was famous for being a great musician but now for being a child molester. That's not my name, and where I'm from I'm not famous at all. The thing you said for your name, didn't sound like a name at all to me. But you physically resemble someone I know."
her: "I like you. Will you come back?"
My teeth started grinding and feeling painful, I spat a tooth out onto the ground.
me: "I can't really 'aim' in dreams, it's different all the time, and I better wake up soon because my teeth are falling out."
her: "You could if you wanted to. But you probably can't wait to talk to her about the books and the songs."
Note I don't know who the referenced 'her' was.

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?
