Spider King Dreams

Currently I am in Union Station. Why am I here? Let me tell you a short story.

I was very tired this morning. At 8.30 it came time to go to Dr. Loughin's Bootstrapping class. I actually felt awake as class started, but about thirty minutes into the class I started to doze on and off. This isn't a good thing for two reasons, one because it is a PhD level class, so I really need to pay attention to understand what is going on. Secondly, I sit in the front row of the class, so I am sure that Dr. Loughin either knows that I was dozing off or thinks that I take a real long time to blink.
Anyways, my dozing got so bad that one time I started to dream the Dr. Loughin was the King of the Spiders and he was teaching us something, I can't remember what, but I remember him drawing a web like thing on the board. I don't think I was out of it for too long, but the idea of Dr. Loughin being the King of the Spiders was entertaining enough to keep me awake for the rest of the period.
So why am I in Union Station? To get coffee. I have another class soon and although the idea of dozing off to the point of altering reality is fun, I really think I should be awake for Data Mining... there is only three of us in the class, Dr. Wang might notice. (Although I would like to take a class that is taught by the Queen of Ants...)

I'm sure that bootstrapping has nothing to do with boots nor strapping but it was a fun thought anyways. why doesn't anyone teach classes like that? where's my shoe-tying class?

That sounds like my dreams.
