I Dreamed About Twins

I had a dream last night that I was talking to one of the boys in the E. 28th bedroom, sitting on the edge of bed. I said, Isn't that something, you're a twin and now you have twin brothers. Where are they?, I said in a panic. In the corner, opposite the window, I found two tiny babies up on a shelf in what looked like shoe boxes.

In the book I'm reading, CUTTING FOR STONE, the twins are placed in their crib apart, but by morning they are in a V-formation, touching at the head. That's how they were in the womb, slightly conjoined at the head but then separated immediately at birth. I remember our boys in the T-formation in the morning.

The dream must have come from my remark in the kitchen last night about being the son of a twin and father of twins.
