I Dreamed a Dream

Once upon a time, I had a dream.

I dreamt I was wearing an ornate gold gown.  It was covered with tiny semi-precious stones and it had a glamorous train.  I remember never feeling as stunning in my life.  Why was I wearing it?  I don't know.  I did know, however, that my beautiful gown was designed by Gustav Klimt.  He had designed it especially for me.  I was wearing a work of art!

Then I woke up.  And I realized that Klimt has been dead for 95 years.  I don't think I'll be getting a Klimt dress anytime soon.

And that's why dreams are better than reality.
