"I had that terrifying dream again," I said.
"You mean the one where youíre human?" asked Charlie.
"Yeah. Only this time I had to wear clothes, go to school, do chores."
"That was a damn nightmare!"
"It happens every night."
"Thatís awful," Charlie said. "Try this before falling asleep: make positive affirmations about your existence. Say out loud what you REALLY are. Repeating affirmations about ourselves can affect our unconscious minds and change our dreams."
"Iíll try it tonight," I said.
Excited about the prospect of dispelling the scary dream forever, I lay down and repeated aloud a hundred times, "Iím a pepperoni pizza."
