    A derivative dream

    Last night I dreamt of San Pedro...No wait.

    Last night I dreamt of math exams.

    I was caught in a never-ending loop of solving math problems. Trigonometry, calculus, geometry. Anxiety set in once I realized my answers weren't neat and clean like you'd expect. Remember how you knew you were on the right track if your solutions turned out to be whole numbers after a long maze of computations? I knew I was in a nightmare once my word problem answer for two approaching trains ended up being -7.25 mph.

    To make matters more bizarre, Madonna's "La Isla Bonita" was playing somewhere in the background.

    And when the samba played
    The sun would set so high
    Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
    Your Pythagorean lullaby.
