You remember Jessie. Apple Scruffs. The woman with the green coat.
I went up to pay my bill at Tom's. Jesse took my check and said, "I dreamed about you last night! About you and Martha."
I made a civil inquiring noise, and she said, "I have this habit of dreaming about work, it's awful, because I'm here all the time, and anyway, I was waiting on you and Martha, and I started to figure out that I was dreaming. So I told you guys: hey, this is actually a dream, so I'm going to the beach instead. And so we all went to the beach together."
"I'm so glad we went to the beach with you!" I said. I took my change, and laid my hand down on the counter as I turned to go. To my surprise, she touched it.
It made a little twist in my heart.
