Twenty minutes until dawn. The kookaburra begin their day. Loudly.

via TweetDeck

It might have been someone chopping up a body, but it didn’t sound like that.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Can’t see anything. I must be safe then, right?

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

OK, so either someone is chopping wood outside before dawn, or there’s a really clumsy axe murderer out there. Think I’d better investigate.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

At this point I realised that it was a dream, because I’d done this bit before. “This is silly,” I thought, and woke up. The End.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Shortly after that, I went back into a house — not the same house, but a house from another dream — and another sub-plot started.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

When I said I was trying to make a phone call, they looked at me somewhat confused, because I was looking for buttons on a paper book.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Things got confusing after that. I remember there was a car full of young people who’d just come back from the beach, who wanted to chat.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

At that point I realised we weren’t in Unley at all, because the streets were dusty.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

I thought that I could figure out the addressee by looking at the signs in the street, but they were damaged. Looking further, I got lost.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

I asked @NicholasFryer what the address was, but I couldn’t quite hear what he was saying over the loud music.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Because we’d only just moved into the house, I couldn’t remember the address, and I couldn’t look up a maps app on my unhelpful not-phone.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

So I was in the street trying to call the police on a phone which kept becoming not a phone.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

I had to make all the arrangements because @NicholasFryer was too “busy” singing along to pop music in his bedroom.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

The body was @NicholasFryer father, who was visiting us in a house in Unley. I found the body when I got up in the morning.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

I woke up ‘cos I was dreaming my phone kept turning into an out-of-date street directory but I needed to call the police about the body.

via Tweetbot for iΟS
