My transparent unconscious

After learning that we’d be putting Barney to sleep today, here’s what I dreamed last night:

I befriended an inmate at juvenile detention, where Rob works, the day before he was to be executed. So Dead Man Walking. I planned to see him the day of the execution and to be there when they put him in the chair. I didn’t think I’d be able to take it, and braced myself for the flicker of the lights, like you see in the movies.

How do I know this dream was about Barney? He was next.
