My bag is very high on the vacuum.

Characters: me, face

I was riding in the back seat of a car when I realized I was dreaming. The passenger side was occupied by a statue-like woman with a mask that looked like something out of Phantom of the Opera. I asked her about contacting someone and what they were doing... conversation went roughly like this:
me: "What is she doing?"
face: "She is doing what she wants."
me: "What am I doing?"
face: "You've moved on, you are ready for this battle to end."
Over the course of our conversation her head was falling apart in various ways but I did my best to ignore this.
me: "Well, what is important to you?"
face: "I am about art."
me: "I suppose that's true of me as well."
At this point the face was completely decomposed in a disturbing way, but I stared straight into it.
me: "Do you know what you look like to me, now, while I am looking at you?"
face: "No. I have lost touch."
Note Something about the delivery and context of "I have lost touch" gave me chills.
me: "What do I look like to you?"
face: "My bag is very high on the vacuum."
me: "It sounds like you said 'my bag is very high on the vacuum'... what does that mean?"
At this point the face turned into a translucent mask and started floating away. I narrated the fact that I saw it getting higher and attempted to see if it could come back to the sound of my voice, but it didn't--and I woke up.
Note Though the bag/vacuum comment seems like a pretty big non-sequitur, it could have been an attempt to say something like "the perspective of my body is in a higher ethereal dimension".

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?
