I dreamed I was driving on the sidewalk. Why the sidewalk I don’t know, but of course, it was a dream. Somehow my car jerked to the left, and I fell into the street with two flat tires. Fortunately, there was no traffic. I got out of the car and started walking, but I fell over again. I looked down, and the soles of my shoes were split and hanging off of my feet. It had started to rain. I could not walk without water seeping into my broken shoes.

Sometimes, the universe seems to pull out all the stops just to get me to stand still.
