I just vaguely had a flashback that this morning I was dreaming that I was in a class and giving a presentation on pop culture. I went to the class not knowing what I was going to present on, and then came up with the idea of a pop culture panel quiz. I appointed the two largest people in the class as team leaders but never separated people into teams. I was racing up and down the hallway of the school trying to think - what materials could I use? what questions? while everyone was waiting in the classroom. The class was rowdy, and the first question I asked was "What team won the 1986 world series?" and I could hear the mets fans in the class start yelling cheerfully, but they all honestly pointed to the quiet girl who answered the questing in a split second and was just sitting there smiling.
This became my springboard for talking about pop culture and shared values fostering community spirit. I had been self-conscious about this pop culture topic because I don't believe myself to be a pop culture kinda girl. I then realized I could have had everyone in the class write down a pop trivia question to use for the panel quiz.
...and then I woke up. It's interesting that this dream was evidence of my brain deciphering the morals vs. values question I went to sleep unable to answer for an English class assignment!
