Characters: me, woman

I was speaking to a woman and going through one of my usual lucid "how is it we're talking" rants. I waved my dream-arms and dream-legs.
me: "Look, I have a body that I walk around in during the day and it's a lot like this one. Well, it seems a lot like this one. I have arms, and legs..."
woman: "We can connect to you, because we can connect... you have a Pocky..."
She continued to rant about some kind of procedure I didn't understand for connecting with me.
me: "My Pocky? What are you talking about?"
Note I didn't think about it at the time, but I think this was a mispronunciation of PC. I definitely thought she was talking about some relation to the candy, Pocky.
woman: "This is surprising and we are going to need to change the marriage. But if you like females then you like females, whatever. It doesn't make a difference as far as I am concerned. But it's going to have to get approved; I think we can file for it and push it through."
me: "Yes this... you look good, but... what are you? If you aren't human then how is it you can speak English?"
woman: "What makes you think I speak in English?"
me: "Oh. I guess one's entire life could be a translation layer, and you'd never know."
woman: "In a manner of speaking, ultimately your whole life could be a translation layer."

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?
