"I'm Not Crazy, I'm Just Asleep"

Excerpt from Adam's website:

" night in a dream that even by my standards was pretty unusual and worthy of professional analysis. In it, a young and hipsterish homeless guy asked if he could live with me. Without a pause I replied- sorry, I have no room. He then countered by explaining that he was like a cat and I would never even notice him. Somehow, this extremely week rebuttal must have convinced me because I let him stay. I attribute my doppelgangers inability to stick to his guns to the prior conditioning that took place in real life over my summer stint in Spain. Sure enough, within minutes of becoming my roommate, the guy started crawling around on all fours, meowing, and spent the majority of his days living under my bed. We got a long for what seemed like a long time under the conditions of this arrangement, but all that changed one day when he started barking like a dog. I promptly told him that our roommate situation was not working any longer, that I could handle living with a cat but not a dog. I told him that he had to go, but before doing so, would need to make a public announcement as to what was going on in my house. Apparently, I lived a life in the public eye and was very concerned about the damaging potential of false rumors that might begin floating around regarding our living arrangement. He kindly agreed and later that day announced to the Associated Press that although we lived together, our relationship was a strictly platonic roommate arrangement that came to an end simply because he could no longer live as a cat when he knew that deep down, he was really a dog."
