When I was in elementary school, I brought home a chick (a baby chicken in this case lol) from school. They were selling them at school (long story). But anyway, I bought it myself without even asking anybody and surprised everyone at home. I had this dream last night, except I was me in the present and in my apartment. I was worrying how this fragile animal would freeze overnight and die, so I put it by the heater made a "cage" from my books to prevent it from running away and getting stepped on. It was ridiculous.
