i dreamed . . .

. . . Tommy Lavergne, Rice University staff photographer, wasn't sure if we should hug or just shake hands when we met outside the library.

There were WORK PERMIT ZONE ONLY signs throughout campus, little yard signs with illustrations of midget jesters on them, and we didn't want to run afoul of campus security, so without saying a word, we decided to just shake hands and pretend like we'd never met before. He said, "Aren't you glad it's April?" I said, "Tommy, you know I celebrate April in March." He said, "Fooled you! It's actually May first." I said, "Well, Happy April then."
