I had a dream last night that I wasbeing pursued by a serif. My best friend was a sans serif and serif was mad. I was just walking along a brick road, talking to sans serif, when serif popped his little ascender out and started to walk menacingly toward me. I ran until I saw a tree to climb. I pulled myself up branch by branch thinking that I had eluded him when all the stems of the leaves started to change. Each green leaf was being punctuated by a serif. The serifs replaced the stems. Then everything I saw started sprouting ascenders and descenders: the rays of sunshine, the tips of clouds, the tail of a puppy. All serifs. I couldn't escape. I was surrounded. I yelped and woke up.
I think I may be working too hard lately. I need a vacation. Maybe two vacations right in a row.
