What are Dreams, Boyfriend?

“What are dreams?” Lion asked the Boyfriend.

“They’re images in your head,” he told Lion.

“What are images?” asked Lion.

“It’s like having TV in your head,” the Boyfriend replied. “But only when you’re sleeping.

“I don’t sleep,” said Lion, who genuinely believed he didn’t sleep. “I’m a guardian angel. You sleep and I guard.”

“Well,” said the Boyfriend, “you don’t have to worry about dreams, then. But that’s what dreams are.”
