Vivid Comedy Dreams

I’ve been having really vivid dreams, really crazy ones, ever since I came home after my first day on the comedy course!

Is it the awakening of my inner child? Extreme processing of the things we did during our first session? Or just complete coincidence ?

Anyway isn’t it really interesting how ideas pop into your head a few seconds after you needed them, or you find yourself role‐playing much better ideas hours later in the kitchen while waiting for the toaster to do its magic.

Isn’t it also a little random when your phone predicts what you’re trying to write, which is great relief at the time because you’ve made an absolute pig’s ear of an attempt, only to then underline it’s own correction as wrong! It’s like it’s noticed you were about 25% correct and threw in a 65% ‘almost’ word as a better guess. One that we can both go back to later and have another go at!
