I'm riding in the car w/ m dad late at night.  We keep driving into very narrow corridors between houses and fences and have to frequently back out.  He's trying to get me to school in time.  As we're walking in someone's yard heading to the car, I notice there's some very smooth dog poop on my feet & legs.  I stop to scrub it off, using the light drizzle to wet my legs.  I dip my leg in a ditch and am startled to see a pair of legs in the water.  I walk up the length of the body and see that the body is holding a child.  It's Sofia and Susannah just under the surface of the water.  I scream and cry and pull them both out and hug their cold wet bodies on the pavement.  In my sorrow, I have the odd feeling that they'll come back to life somehow.

I'm on a cruise ship and we're trying to escape or evade the officials onboard.  We decide to go down a laundry chute but only the kids will fit.  We send down one kid and Everett but the chute breaks before we can send Sofia.  We start to panic and try to figure out how to get down to the 2 children.  I ask someone if the guards are more likely to take the elevators or the stairs and he says we should take the stairs.  I run around franticly until I find a bathroom.  I start peeing without closing the door and suddenly feel embarrassed.  There's an unflushed turd in the toilet but I keep peeing.
