I was dreaming that I was at a party. I was outside avoiding human contact. I was snacking on a bag of fried rats. I felt a twitching in my hand. I looked down and one of the rats hadn't cooked long enough and was wiggling in my hand. In a disgusted reflex-motion I threw the rat down. I heard a female voice exclaim "Jesus!". I woke to discover that my wife had lied down next to me and was trying to hold my hand. When I reflexed in the dream, I reflexed for real. I scared her.
Why was I disgusted by holding a live rat when I had been eating a bag of fried ones?
Who was the person with which I was sharing the rats and conversation?
What synapses will endure after equating a live rat to my wife's loving hand?
