PROMPT November 9th

You are having a very realistic dream. In this dream, you are approaching a castle. What unusual reason do you have to be at this castle? What do you say to the two guards standing outside it to
gain entrance.

The two guards are wearing bearskins on their heads, so I must be in London. The Queen is in residence, I know this as the Union Jack flag is flying full mast. I need to tell the Queen something really important. If only I could remember what it was I was supposed to tell her. I only know that the fate of humanity depends on my memory. Well, I could have told whoever it was that gave me this job, not to depend on me. My memory is getting worse.
I’m sure I wrote it down, but I only find a shopping list in my hand. Tea, bread, dog food. I don’t suppose this is what the Queen needs to know? I stand at the gate and plead with the soldiers. “Let me in!” I scream. “The Queen will want to know this” The soldiers stare. They are inscrutable. Am I invisible?
“You’ll be beheaded, you fools.” I jump up and down. Checking my pockets for the message I discover I have no pockets in this suit. , “Oh no! I’m naked.”
