From The Department of I Had No Idea

I could smell candles in my dream. I didn’t know you could have smell recall in your dream. HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE??? How can you smell something that isn’t there? I realize the likely response to that question is something along the lines of "Same way you can see things that aren't there." But I think it makes more sense that we might see things in our mind's eye than we might smell them.

Sort of on topic, but not. Have you ever woken up giggling? Best feeling in the world. I can never remember the dreams that inspire the laughter, but it doesn't matter. A good-morning guffaw is great.

How can I laugh at something that didn't happen? I guess it's the mind's eye thing. I've never laughted at a dream-scent. Might be fun.

No, I never have, but I wake up screaming more often than anyone should. And of course, when I wake up screaming, Ben wakes up too.
