So B and I have been out of the house quite a bit during and before Pokemon Go Water Week. Frankly, BEFORE water week we'd found multiple Magikarp cluster spawns. Multiple. It was obscene.

B had already evolved two Gyrados (that's 800 candy, remember) and powered up some of them before the week started.

Now? She's back up to 540ish, 550ish. I've got 629--but remember, I get out the house more.

Those numbers don't mean much without finding a 'shiny' Magikarp. According to much bigger geeks than me? The odds are somewhere in the Two-to-the-thirteenth-to-fourteenth power range. One in 4,096 at best. About half as likely as you are to find a Magikarp with perfect stats [which are commonly known as `Perfect Four.`]

I've never seen a Perfect Four Magikarp. Despite multiple cluster spawns in more than one state since July of last year.

Which is not the story I've come to tell you. It's this one...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

B was asleep on the couch last night while I slept in the bedroom. She had her reasons. She's on the tail end of her bone pain, but off the steroid bump and didn't care to be heard yelping in her sleep. I know, I know. She's better than she WAS. 'Better' is a relative term, not an absolute. She's been worse. Much more so. ANYWAAAAAAYYY

She dreamt that--while reclining on the couch--she'd found that vaunted Shiny Magikarp. It was on her phone's screen, it was on my phone's screen...but not on my tablet yet. (When I'm driving, she juggles things to keep me legal, 'specially now) She kept poking and poking and it wasn't coming up and...

...next thing you know, she dreamt I was barreling down the stairs behind her. She made a concerned noise, asked what I was doing and I'd told her I was checking on my phone and tablet in the family room.

One small problem: She DIDN'T DREAM THAT LAST SEGMENT. If I wasn't dreaming the same dream, it was close enough that I stood up, dragged down the hallway and tore down the stairs to find nothing resembling a Magikarp. Or any other interesting monster.

Weird shit, huh? I'ma start wearing a foil cap to bed. Keep her outta my thoughts!

That is so hilarious. I love that your connection with Pokemon extends to the dream world!

Bone pain just sounds horrendous, though. Poor B. I hope this is over soon. Does she have much longer?

One more course. That's it. Hopefully, her labs will be good enough that we can do this without delays....

Wil texted me in agony last night to say D caught a shiny one while they were grocery shopping, but it never showed up for him. :( :( :(

That's interesting that your connection with Pokemon gets into the dream world.
