Anonymous said: Which ex did you dream about?
What up anon. This is kind of old now, sorry. I dreamt about a boy I dated briefly in high school. It was always a huge bummer because I would dream about him every few months and everything would be great in the dream, then I’d wake up and realize I hadn’t talked to him in years.
It hasn’t happened since. Largely in part, I think, because I started seeing someone for the first time in three years and it’s going really well so my subconscious doesn’t have to go searching through the depths to find pleasant romantic memories.
That was more information than you asked for.
(later: This is SUPER old now. Sorry anon. But two months in now with the boy and I haven’t had a single throw back dream. Huzzah!)

Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8
This makes me laugh every time I see it.
