You know the dream we’ve all had, where you are about to take a final exam for a class, and you have not studied the material at all. Moreover, you haven’t been to a single class session all semester.
Lately I’ve been experiencing a new variant of it. I arrive at the airport for an international flight, with just a couple of hours to go through security and check in, when it hits me: My passport expired in 1983 and I don’t even have it with me. Recently I’ve had this dream twice.
Has anyone else experienced this sort of dream?
And, on a purely factual note, how quickly could one get a passport? Are there INS officials (or whatever the agency is now called) at major airports
who could verify my identity and issue a passport on the spot? It might help make the dreams easier to live with.
