I used to have dreams where I would wake up and be so convinced that there was a wormhole above me. A portal to another universe. And if I sat up I would be half in our world and half in another. This idea terrified me and I would lay in bed, eyes wide open, refusing to exist in two states. These dreams may have come from too many Twilight Zone episodes. Spending so much time overthinking every cue, only to realize it was a cookbook the whole time. Two states at once.
