Ocho the Trading Card

Was reading some statistics and history about a creature, it was some kind of eyeball with legs, and it was called "Osho" or "Ocho", who was the "I-God". Stepping back I realized that it was just a playing card (as in a trading card game). There were many other cards on the floor.
I picked a couple others up and then went back to look more closely "Ocho". His name started to make more sense...he was called "Ocho" because he was similar to an octopus and had 8 legs. In fact, the card suddenly seemed mundane and I felt stupid for ascribing so much significance to it.
Note The similarity of the room I was in to my own room struck me at the time, but looking at my notes and reflecting on the experience I realize it didn't look like my room at all.
There was a credit card on a desk, and a monitor that was too bright to read. Picking up the card, I tried to read the name on it. There was an odd effect where closing my left eye would hide some of the letters, and closing my right eye would hide other letters. The name on the card was mine, but the middle initial was incorrect--so I grabbed a sharpie and wrote out my full name.
Note Odd synchronicity that today's Strong Bad Email was released and was on the theme of Character Trading Cards. Paper game cards are not something I think about very often, if ever...because apparently both I and Strong Bad apparently have little interest in.

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?
