Last night I dreamt about the Pope
:) This isn't so surprising, I guess - I often dream of people I've been thinking about. But anyway, my dream ...
I worked in a large building filled with lots of people, and Francis also worked there and was our boss, though I'd never met him. One night, I went outside on my break and I took along a comic book that belonged to the pope to read. It was sealed in a plastic sleeve - must have been a collector's item - and as I was about to look at it, he came by with some other people and went into the building. Eek - he noticed I had his comic book! I went inside and in a large common room, Francis was going around to everyone, giving them a page of paper. He gave me one too and then moved on. I scrutinized the page - I was worried he had given me a pink slip - but it was instead a combination of a check and an invitation to an upcoming party. He came back into my area and I gathered my courage to approach him and give him back his book. I said, "Sorry that I borrowed it without asking first. I took good care of it - I used to collect comics myself when I was a kid." He just nodded, but then a bunch of reporters came up to him and asked him why he was throwing a party. He reached down (he was quite tall) and gently rested his hand on my head and smiled at me, saying, to my surprise, "It was her idea."
Then I woke up. Strange! :)
