In a dream he had been drunk and had
made such a fool of himself that the

bar owner wouldn’t let him back. He
pleaded and exclaimed that he wasn’t

an alcoholic and that he would behave
himself in the future but had just lost

himself temporarily because of trauma
in his life, two traumas to be specific

and then he sincerely detailed the two
and he gained the owner’s approval and

admission to the bar. On the way out
the door, he thought about his con-

fession and appeal to sympathy and
he realized he had gotten what he

was after and it was in that thought
and the accompanying smile on his

face that he secured his expulsion.
When he awoke, he thought about that.
