31. When I was five years old, I was a huge Star Wars fan (like pretty much every other kid in the world). I remember having a dream one night that I was playing with the toy Millennium Falcon that I had seen advertised on television so many times. The dream was so vivid that I woke up the next morning thinking that I actually owned the toy. I hopped right out of bed, ran downstairs to my toybox, and nearly cried when it wasn’t there. My dad saw that I was upset about something and asked me what was wrong. I told him about the dream and how sure I was that it had been real. He thought for a moment and then told me to go get dressed. My parents didn’t make a habit of buying me expensive toys outside of Christmas or my birthday, but after seeing how disappointed I was after my dream, my dad took me out that morning and bought me a Millennium Falcon. It’s still one of my fondest childhood memories.
