I dreamed I was about to be eaten by a huge drooling monster with fangs. I reached behind me and grabbed an ice cream cone and threw it in his mouth with all my might. He chomped and licked his lips. I threw another, and another, and another. Finally he let one drop in front of him and burped. Then he walked up to me — I was so scared — and rubbed the side of his face against my leg like a cat. Next he stood on his hind legs and put his front legs on my shoulders, then licked my face like a dog. So I scritched his ears.
May all our monsters be as easily tamed.
