Another Ask Roger Anything reply! Bill, who I know because he’s a friend of my sister Leslie: OK, here’s my question: Whither?
There’s obviously a lot going on in my subconscious.
To which, Dan, who I know IRL, replied: Wither? Zither!
In a recent dream, I’m at some sort of conference, where the participants are sitting in a large circle. The instructor is riding me constantly for being so backwards. I’m using a tablet when everyone else is using their smartwatches.
I’m becoming increasingly irritated. After repeated snark, I storm out of the room.
For some reason, rioting ensues on the campus. I am sitting on a toilet, with people pounding on the door to get in; it is NOT the only stall.
Bernie Sanders walks into my stall. I get up and throw him down a flight of stairs.
This is obviously a dream about my technophobia. Plus it’s my general disdain for having to deal with the political process this early. It’s not so much antagonism towards Bernie, who I voted for in the 2016 Democratic primary.

Re: Beto, I’m still trying to figure out if there’s a there there.
I get more email from Jay Inslee, governor of Washington state, than any other candidate, almost entirely on environmental issues. It IS a way to differentiate himself.
