I dreamed I was taking a Latin vocabulary test, English-to-Latin, and was stuck on the last two words. One of them was "hillock", accompanied by a picture of a tumulus. In my dream, I thought "tumulus" was an Old English word. No wonder I couldn't think of the Latin. The other word was "old street", which I can't account for as a single word in Latin now that I'm awake either.

I'm not even taking the Latin exam next week, and I'm still getting second-hand stress dreams about it. Odd though, in some ways, that I'm not taking it. It's been part of my twice-yearly habits for so many years now.
