J: We went to the meadow on the other side of Army Street.

R: There’s a meadow there?

J (impatiently): In my dream. It was you and me and Big, and we looked at all the wildlife. There were some sheep on a hill. They had one ear much bigger than the other. Big said Adrian and Sam had been involved with these sheep, but they turned out to be too much trouble.

R: Trouble how?

J: Too opinionated. There was also a termite’s nest that had what looked like an owl inside, but when it came out, it was a tiny jaguar. It wended its way through our legs.

R: Wended.

J: Yes.

R: And the opinionated sheep had one ear bigger than the other?

J: It might have been that I was seeing one ear edge-on.
