Not long ago, in the summer heat, I went to bed while my hair was still wet. When I lay my head down I kept thinking it wasn’t such a good idea to lie down while my hair was wet because I’d fall asleep like that and my pillow would be soaked through.

I managed to get so absorbed in these thoughts that I spent the whole night being half-asleep, half-awake: I had this disturbing dream in which all the little bugs and mosquitoes in my room came to have a “drink” from my hair. I could see them lapping up the drops of water on my hair… They came in groups to get a refreshing drink. It was very unpleasant to sleep like this. Even though I kept tossing and turning, the bugs always came back.
