You know those dreams about getting to class and it's final exam day, and you haven't studied--heck, you haven't even shown up in months? And you're all stressed and freaked out, berating yourself for having been so stupid, even when you wake up? Well, last night my subconscious unleashed a corker of a variation: I was arriving at the Opening Day ceremonies for the new Nationals ballpark
in April 2008, and suddenly I was paralyzed with the realization that I hadn't bothered to take any new photos for, oh, the previous 18 months or so.
My heart finally stopped pounding about 10 minutes after I woke up.
I'm *pretty* sure that's not going to happen in real life.
