Characters: me, goatee man

I needed to use a restroom, and was wandering through a strange house. I went into a room which was a strange jumble... there was a toilet, and a shower, but it also looked like a bedroom. Things were set up in crazy ways so that there were laptop computers getting wet from the shower. Things were all mixed up.
A girl wearing an animal print bikini had followed me in and was sharing in my puzzlement.
girl: "There's something wrong with this room."
me: "I think it goes beyond there being 'something wrong'. It's more like there isn't anything right about it."
Unable to get past the junk to reach the toilet, and feeling a bit like I needed to just get on with the dream investigation, I decided to just pee where I was. Leaving the room, I entered a party atmosphere and began asking questions. One person I spoke to was a man on a large TV monitor with a goatee, who looked a bit like "The Master" from the original Doctor Who.
me: "So what am I supposed to do about all these dreams?"
goatee man: "I have three answers to that."
me: "Ok, let's hear them."
goatee man: "Answer #1 is, forget the dreams. Just.... forget them."
me: "Well, I can't do that. So what's your answer #2?"
I felt a tap on my shoulder from behind. When I turned around, the man with the goatee was standing there in person.
me: "Oh... hm, how did you do that?"
goatee man: "Look at the screen."
Turning back around, I saw the screen he had been on now had a logo for something that said what I thought was "Subversive". It was red writing, and there were bits of white text underneath representing menu options. One of them said "buy tickets"
me: "Okay, what is subversive?"
goatee man: "Not subversive. SUBVERSE."
He pushed me forward toward a group of people who were talking.
goatee man: "Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like you to meet the producer. The creator of Subverse."
me: (mad) "I didn't do it. Don't remember making it, therefore I didn't do it in any way that you can give meaning."
goatee man: "You would have us believe it wasn't you who sent the only two pieces to individuals who would later--just by 'coincidence'--meet in a cafe and put them together?"
me: "No. It wasn't, and I have no idea what you're talking about. So get on with #3."
goatee man: "Number three is that N to the Nth power is always going to be less."
me: "What?"
There was a pause as he looked like he was trying to figure out a way to explain what he was saying.
goatee man: "For instance, N to Mars is always going to be less."
me: "You're going to have to explain this in some other terms. What does Mars have to do with it?"
goatee man: "Well... it's more like Mar-th."

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?
