oh my precious weary mind

I just dreamed of a delicate universe and the most amazing flavor of hot chocolate. The packet for the instructions said, "Add hot water and stir occasionally. Keep in mind that a second before making this it was still a joke. If we hadn't made it we wouldn't be where we are today, we'd still be laughing about this joke in the back of our cars."

It was some sort of crumbly hot cocoa with bits of dark chocolate similar to one of those "dirt and worms" cupcakes with the crumbled cookies and gummy worms, except I'm not sure what the crumbles were made of. Instead of gummy worms, it had those dinosaurs from the dinosaur eggs oatmeal that you pour hot water over and then they melt, "hatching" the egg. Except these were straight up dinosaurs so they'd melt right into the chocolate, making it easy to stir (and swallow). I don't think the bits of cookie or whatever would go down well though, especially because I don't know what they were. Come to think of it, they looked more like bits of chocolate cake. They were very dark, almost black.

I dreamed the whole thing. I dreamed of choosing the right mug and washing it out in the sink. It was one of my tan-colored mugs from home, but there was some weird tin interior I'd never seen before. When I put my ear up against it and listened, it played some kind of minimal tribal techno. And it was rainy outside. The whole sidewalk was wet and covered by the rainfall, and students outside my dorm window were laughing on the way to class.

That would have been such an energizer for today, both the rain and the hot cocoa. It's still foggy right now but it's only 7am, so who knows if it'll stay...

Please, just let me get through today.
