Dream Baby

“I hear that if you die in your dream you die in real life.”

“I’ve heard that too, but I don’t know. I was shot in my dream once.”

“I think if you have a baby in your dream, you have one in real life.”


“Seriously, what are you smoking?”

“And where can we get some?”

“Real funny you guys.”

“Yeah, I don’t think so. I’ve had plenty of children in my dreams.”


“Yeah. I mean not all at once.”

“What’s it like?”

“It’s really intense. It’s so real, it’s kind of scary.”

“When was the last time you had a dream baby?”

“It was like a week ago. I went into labor behind a truck. Not sure why. But the best part? My birthing doctors were these two random guys from high school.”

“Wow, talk about embarrassing.”

“You’re telling me. They were also guys I never even spoke to.”


“Maybe you really wanted to speak to them.”

“Oh please no Freudian readings.”

“So what happened?”

“I went through labor. It wasn’t painful, but I couldn’t see anything over my gigantic belly. And before I knew it, there was this beautiful baby boy in my arms. God, he was so precious. I remember naming him Mikaīl.”

“And then what happened?”

“And then I woke up. And that feeling was the worst.”


“Because Mikaīl was real for those few moments. He was a part of me. I held him in my arms, felt his heartbeat near my chest, looked at him and got to know him. When I woke up, he just didn’t exist. All of those emotions I went through seemed completely futile. All of it was gone.”

“Would you like more water?”

“Yes. Thanks.”

“Can I get another soda?”


“Thank God men can’t have children. I wouldn’t want to go through that in my dream or in real life.”
