the name of the dream

the bouncing dad of a baby boy

 

my partner had recently become the mother to a boy, and a televised interview invited questions regarding the latest addition to the family

 

the first questioner asked, "do you intend to have any more children ?"

 

i nodded and said "yes."

 

the questioner then asked another question, "how will you go about it ?"

 

i knew she meant "how will you and your next partner get together?" but that was not the most obvious meaning in the question

 

i was smiling as i explained, "usually, i let the woman decide which side of the bed to lie on, although on occasions..."

 

two other scenes in a similar vein followed, but this first scene captures the mood of the dream best
