Talking about Dreams

When she felt more confident with me, she started talking about her dreams.

“They’re really weird sometimes,” she said, “Like this one time I was in this old elementary school they turned into a hospital and then deserted after some kind of war. Only local people were using it again and I ended up in this room where they have rows of cots with babies in them. I spent some time with the babies until I realized they were not babies at all but something different.”

I nodded, signalling I was a good listener and also understood the emotions she was feeling. I stopped myself from retelling a dream I had because she did not want to hear that, she just wanted to talk. Keeping silent, I was scoring points.

“One time,” she continued, “I had a baby myself, only it turned out not to be a good baby at all and I hated it. So I left it at a bus stop.”

“Wait,” I said, “Are we still talking about dreams?”

    1. I’m a Polish guy writing in English and I ain’t fooling nobody. Who told you it was a good idea to learn from me? πŸ˜›

      1. You can do it because you know English very well and you seem to be very accurate person. Writing like native speaker means using English grammar constructions and building sentences like English people. Is it possible?

        1. I’m sure a non-native speaker can get close. Even if it’s not perfect, it’s worth a try. πŸ™‚
