  • Grace Notes

    I'm not sure if this comes under the category of TMI (too much information), but sometimes I scream in my sleep.

    I don't do it often and it's mostly a muffled sound, but every once in a while a nightmare elicits a good yell in the middle of the night.

    The other night I dreamed about a pile of long, squiggly black snakes inside the vegetable crisper drawer in my refrigerator and one bigger, lighter purple-y snake that actually didn't look too healthy.

    In my dream, my dad grabbed all the snakes in one hand and got rid of them.
