Out-of-This-World Dream

Had an unusual dream:

I dreamed I was visited by creatures from another planet. To help them learn about us, I gave them classic books and movies to study which they gladly accepted, and flew away.

Later, they returned to Earth to deliver gifts of advanced technology. They had used the research materials I'd given them to design items that humans could use. But, apparently, I'd given them the wrong resources....

You see, everything they brought for us was coin-operated.
All the valuable advanced technology you could ask for... if you first insert a quarter.


Care to analyze that one?

I'll analyze it if you give me a quarter first.

You ain't to be had for free?

Well, since they were aliens and couldn't read...they went by the pictures....


Seriously, forget the frickin quarter, did they give you a key to the door, woman??!!??

Deep: the aliens are your kids & they have the potential to exceed the highest expectations when you invest in them...

Shallow: You gotta pay to play!

Presumably, they're telling us there's no such thing as a free lunch..
