I am standing in the middle of a football stadium.
But this isn't a real football stadium.
It appears to be a giant board game.
I see people in the crowd, the grass, and the lines on the field all are painted flat on cardboard. There’s a large plastic orange goalpost up ahead.
I hear the sound of a whistle, the rumbling of the crowd, and a PA announcer. The sounds are tinny, like a speaker on a small electronic game.
A player throws me the ball.
The ball is a chestnut, the size of a football.
The other players are squirrels, as tall as I am, running and bobbing about on their hind legs. They are dressed in blue and red football uniforms.
I run, dodging the squirrels, left and right, as I make my way up the field.
I am supposed to pass the chestnut, but I don't know which player to throw it to.
I throw the chestnut high into the air.
It bursts into a flurry of fireworks bright white, red, blue and green.
I hear the sound of the tinny speaker crackle. The crowd goes wild.
Then I woke up.
