dreaming about?'
Alice said 'Nobody can guess that.'
'Why, about YOU!' Tweedledee exclaimed, clapping his hands triumphantly.
'And if he left off dreaming about you, where do you suppose
you'd be?'
'Where I am now, of course,' said Alice.
'Not you!' Tweedledee retorted contemptuously. 'You'd be nowhere.
Why, you're only a sort of thing in his dream!'
'If that there King was to wake,' added Tweedledum, 'you'd go
out—bang!—just like a candle!'
