Last night's dream
Last night I had a dream that this guy I know asked me to watch his backpack. After he walked away, I reached into the bag (even though I knew I wasn't supposed to) and pulled out a small house. It was made of thick green glass—bottle-thick, but a jade green. I shook the little house and turned it upside down—three ancient Greek coins (also, strangely, made of green glass) fell out. I got worried that I wouldn't be able to get them back into the house so I looked inside and discovered that the coins had only been secured to the inside of the house with a piece of Scotch Magic Tape. I put the three coins back in the house, put the house back in the bag, and when he came back, I handed him his backpack. He never knew the difference.
