Mirrors for Nothing

Characters: him, me

I was flipping through some movies, because I was trying to select a film for some purpose. When I could not find it, I began describing the film I was looking for to someone in the room.
him: "Is this a new story?"
me: "No, it's a very common one... the idea that believing in something makes it real... thought incarnates into a form. Buddhist thing. Kind of like how we are incarnated now."
Had I been less groggy, I might have said Velveteen Rabbit. I noticed I was dreaming and began describing what he looked like. He vaguely resembled the level of computer-generated avatar design that was in the Dire Straits money for nothing video.
me: "You look like you have purple hair, almost in the shape of a helmet. And you don't have feet, your legs end in rounded nubs. What do I look like?"
him: "Why don't you look in a mirror?"
me: "I'm afraid it might make me wake up faster."
him: "Don't worry about that."
I was kind of stocky also, with a kind of computer-animation five-o-clock shadow. I was wearing blue denim, and the collar of the shirt I had on was some kind of lopsided buckle. I took off the shirt and saw I was wearing a black cape underneath that. There was only one mirror, so I looked at another wall and a second mirror materialized. I confirmed that I looked the same.
him: "I'm gonna charge you extra for that second mirror."
I responded with a confused look.
him: "No, no! I'm just making a joke. I like that you looked in more than one. It's good thinking."

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?
