Mais une nouvelle page du déchiffrement onirique a été tournée cette année, chez moi. Voyez-vous, ma petite amie a un don: tous les matins que Dieu fait, elle se souvient de ses rêves de façon exhaustive, ce qui, il va de soi, alimente généreusement nos réflexions et nos débats autour du petit-déjeuner. Malheureusement, ces conversations sont à sens unique. Je fais partie de ceux qui ne se souviennent presque jamais de leurs rêves. Internet m'a d'abord laissé sur ma faim.
