THE SWAP

Really, it could only have been a dream:' But, after another moment, he turned, went out of the room, through the passage, and into the bathroom. He bent down.

" Well," he muttered, "if it was a dream, it not only took its time about it, but it troubled to produce quite a lot of circumstantial evidence. It was certainly a dream that cared enough for verisimilitude to dress the part. It was a dream with such a sense of the dramatic that it first nearly pushed me right out of the basic dream of this life, but, having taken me to the brink, it swung me back again. I've never heard of a patient who overslept the time of his injection long enough to bring himself to the verge of collapse and then, in his dream, not only sleepwalked and gave himself the dose in the nick of time, but who also troubled to invent another character, taken from one of his colleagues. And this character is brought in not only to give him the dose but, with a novelist's love for accuracy of character, the colleague is made to give the injection so damn badly that the dreamer deals himself a sore arm for two weeks! Anyhow, that's what I'm in for!"
