Nobody in the Future Is Wonderful

Characters: guy, me, asian woman

I found myself in a dark room, and the first person I encountered was a guy slouching in a chair.
guy: "There you are! Why don't you take off those big glasses and give me a kiss!"
He grabbed my glasses and made some kind of face that looked a bit like a horse baring its teeth. I kissed my hand and blew it toward him.
me: "Um, I don't want to offend or anything, but no thank you."
guy: "Well you should check her out..."
The room began to come into focus and I saw several other people, including an Asian-looking woman who was laying naked on her back. Her body seemed to be made out of some kind of translucent plastic, and there was an area which was glowing a blueish animation under the skin. She seemed to be showing it off (as one might show off a new Tattoo). I ran my hand over it.
me: "That is very interesting."
Taking stock of some of the other people in the room, I saw they were all pretty weird. One girl had a second head on her neck, another guy had wings.
me: "Look...I am from a place where this kind of thing isn't possible yet. Do you understand the implications of what I'm saying?"
asian woman: (looking depressed) "That you're not that wonderful? That nobody here is that wonderful, either?"
me: "No, that's not what I mean. I'm going to look around more."
I walked out of the strange dark room and found I was in someplace that was like a very futuristic mall, with high ceilings. Robots were whizzing around that resembled things out of WALL-E:
I lost track of the dream but sort of managed to get my bearings again in a parking lot. Robots with lasers seemed to be tracking me. A small humanoid form that was covered in black reflective clothing got out of a vehicle with a gun pointed at me. I held up my hands.
It opened a small blue box and ordered me inside. Frightened of being stuffed in that small space, I forced myself awake.

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?
