The Witch Box Head Speaker

Characters: me, woman, voice, her

I found a friendly room of women up a staircase who were chatting about the fact that they read my website and were impressed.
me: "Can you enter my world the way I can enter yours?"
woman: "No. The inhabitants of your realm...they are supposed to be unhappy ALL of the time. They are not allowed to have dolls."
me: "Well I bet it's possible! If you can show me how you read websites from my world, I can probably start to understand enough to give you information on how to send information back. I know a lot about tricks for encoding information across noisy channels, things like that..."
In response, the woman took off her face, it atrophied into something green that looked a bit like a Halloween witch.
me: (a bit repulsed) "Hey, ok, I can deal with that."
Then that face kind of dissolved and it degraded from being a face at all into some kind of box-shaped device, with a speaker. As the speaker of the box became disconnected...the room just turned to noise. I thought the dream was dissolving, but noticed the rest of the room was fine. The dream audio had just died.
Then the machine was reassembled to the point of being a box again, and the audio came back.
me: "Oh I get it! Wow, so you already HAD a bridge!"
voice: "No, but I have used mastery of technology to make one."
At this point very tall woman--nearly twice my height--came and pulled me away from facing the box, into a bed with her.
me: "Are you who I was just talking to?"
her: "No. We should be resting right now."
me: "I want to talk to the box some more."
her: "They had to go handle an emergency at a pool."
Note It was one of those interpretation cases where it's hard to tell whether that was a joke, and they just decided to go swimming and call it a "pool emergency".

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?
