The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows

Dream Fever: n. the intense heat on the skin of a sleeping person, a radioactive byproduct of an idle mind humming with secret delusions which then vaporize when plunged into the cooling bath of reality, thus preventing a meltdown that could endanger those close by, who tolerate the risk because it gives them energy.”

I just ran into The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows and it made my heart sing.

Strange? Yes.

Dramatic? Absolutely.

Wonderful, brain-titillating bits? I think so.
