Yeah, it was like the most anti-climactic MacGuffin hunt ever. The spies were all "maybe there's a microdot?" But no. Just. .. a metal Wilton tip.

There is a wizarding school in the US and the classrooms are hidden inside an upscale ginormous department store. Oddly, the workers don't realize it's there or why teenagers are always hanging out in front of the glass store front. Students are always having to dodge aggressive saleswomen while going to and from classes.

I received a very poor written employee evaluation, from a woman who speaks Spanish.

The evaluation was written in Spanish and filled with exclamation points and vulgarity.

I was wondering how to explain this to my employer.

Thanks.

Bill

Other than me and my husband, my entire family (including some who are deceased) have been transformed into geese. I'm trying to find out the life span of a human transformed into a goose, and having no luck.

I'm back living in my childhood home, and Donald Trump is somehow now my stepfather . I have no idea how this came about or what happened to my actual father, who is still married to my mom in real life. I don't think I ever actually saw Trump in the dream, as I spent most of it trying to avoid him by hiding out in my room with the door closed, pretending to be asleep until he left.

I learned that Donald Trump is actually terrified because he doesn't know what he's doing and he doesn't know why everyone is always getting mad at him. He still hasn't gotten over some trauma relating to his dad, and what he really needs is a hug. Oh, and it's OK, now that he's had a hug and worked all this out he'll be stepping down peacefully. But first I have to help him pick a new suit out from the large walk-in closet. (Yeah, this was a weird one.)

In order to get into some prestigious boarding school a prospective student must make a batch of cookies that make Gordon Ramsay say "wow!" There are currently 2 openings and some kid has muffed it by baking plain old Tollhouse cookies. But some gal sent Gordon into raptures with her chocolate rum sprinkles .

I attended a party in my grandparents' old house, which is now vacant.

It's a catered party, with Southwestern food, but somehow there's food for everyone except me.

Thanks.

Bill

You know, I wouldn't be entirely surprised if that first part is true.

Even if so, however, I doubt it can be fixed with a hug.

Part of the dream I made last night was that there was a brand off bottled water calles "James Bond". However, I had to fill the bottle with tap water.

A water martini, please. Shaken, not stirred.

If you help Elon Musk out of a jam, he will offer you an awkward hug.
