First Edition
ight before last my dad tried to kill me. At
 least, I’m pretty sure that was his plan. For weeks andmonths I’d been worrying about it. I guess Dad had hisreasons, but he didn’t do it. Obviously. Lucky me, huh?Sorry, sarcasm is one of the few weapons I possess.I heard this thing once on a TV program about a guy whohad a recurring dream that he was a butterfly. One day he woke up and couldn’t tell for sure if he was a butterfly dreaming he was a guy, or a guy dreaming he was a but-terfly. Lately, when I first wake up, I have the feeling thatmaybe my dream life is better than my real life. Dreamingis my favorite part of each day, flying, soaring, feeling freebecause of all the amazing possibilities it offers. Yep, I’vegot reality—then everything else.
