I had a dream last

I had a dream last night. In this dream, I had pale pink pillowcases that were covered in soot. They were so dirty that my new girlfriend left in disgust.

This poses three questions:

  1. what on earth was I doing with pale pink pillowcases in the flat?
  2. how did soot get into my bedroom?
  3. most importantly, who was the new girlfriend? I never actually saw her.

I’ve already had one learned opinion on this, but what do you think? Answers on a postcard please.
