Went to bed mulling over a play/serious argument between Arthur D and Karen G on Twitter. Suddenly I was in a hotel room. Karen comes in, looking grumpy, I try to say something but she’s just annoyed that I know. Leaves.
I go to the foyer to get some air. A man wants to buy my watch, or one just like it. I say ‘no’ (though I know they’ve stopped making the model) he hangs around, won’t leave. Follows me up to my room. I manage to get into the room first and lock the door with the light off. Blind down on the door over its window.
Over to my computer on the desk. Trying to be quiet. Suddenly the man is in the room with me in the darkness. Door still locked. Standing still. I put the light on and ask him to leave, he doesn’t. I point to the room camera and say they’ve seen him. No response. I panic and take him by the throat and shout at him to leave; he’s even shorter than me and dangles in the air. I’m appalled at myself. Then he starts to get vicious. He fights me with the back of his hands and his fingers, wet and sweaty, reaching for my watch, knocking me over …
I wake up, hot, and head full of pins and needles.
I think was having trouble breathing in my sleep.
