Linda Davick, Dream Detective

Tom and I saw Paprika, an animated movie that takes place in the near future. In it, a revolutionary new psychotherapy treatment has been invented. Through a device called the DC Mini, one can become a dream detective and view other people's dreams and explore their unconscious thoughts.

Since I don't have a DC Mini yet, I have to find other ways to explore Tom's unconscious thoughts. I try to be subtle, but sometimes I have to prompt him.

Me: Did you have any dreams last night?
Tom: ... Um ... I think so ... Let's see ...
Me: Was I the star?
Tom: ... I think you were in this dream ...
Me: Did I do something really smart? or brave?
Tom: No. You stayed in character.
