Dreams of sugar plums... er... rice milk tea

I had a dream last night that I was in Beijing, walking down the street where I used to teach at Canon once a week, past a convenience store I usually went into before class to buy a particular rice milk tea (which I couldn't find other places) and some kind of snack before class.
As I walked past (in the dream) I thought, "Wow, it feels so nice to be here, and there's that store, I should go get one of those drinks and a muffin." But I was on my way to find some other place a few blocks away, so I kept walking, figuring there'd be plenty of time to go back for that drink later, because I was going to stay in Beijing for a while, and it felt so nice to know I'd be there for a long time....

Then I woke up.

I should've enjoyed the drink while I had the chance. Darnit.
