Strange Dream


I had a strange dream this morning.  In this dream, weird zoo animals somehow got into my house (which later turned out to be a mobile home).  By weird, I mean these animals sort of resembled certain species of animals, but something was slightly off.  For example, there were some ostrich-like birds, but they were […]

Interesting Questions
