Them: objects? People? Electronic devices? Images on a screen? Did you do the thing using the "them"?

Did you do the thing using the "them"? No

Also "normal" should have been "normally" in the puzzle description - sorry.

It should? "Normal" looks grammatically correct to me, where "normally" wouldn't...

Oh, I see, you meant the *second* 'normal' should be 'normally'. Now it makes sense. *facepalm*

Are both objects in fact mountains? Mountain ranges?

Actually, Kaylee probably unintentially gave a big clue with "facepalm", but be very careful of FA's!

Bigger than mountains: mountain ranges? Islands? Volcanoes? Landscapes? Counties? Countries? Is a border relevant? Are the objects on the earth? Inside? Away from earth?

if in our solar system, do the moons orbit:
Mars? Jupiter? Saturn? Uranus? Neptune? Pluto? *is stubbornly ignoring its demotion as a planet* Or have Mercury and Venus acquired moons recently?

If in our solar system, do the moons orbit:
Mars? Jupiter? Saturn? Uranus? Neptune? Pluto? None of these *is stubbornly ignoring its demotion as a planet* Hey I think it's good news, and far from a demotion, I think it makes Pluto an esteemed visitor who liked our solar system so much that it decided to stay here! Or have Mercury and Venus acquired moons recently? Interesting question - I'm not sure if there have ever been any moons discovered around those two

Were the two moons orbiting Earth? Yes, good question! Did this happen in a dream? Yes, another good question

**** SPOILER ******

So I was watching the sky one night. I don't remember what else I was doing, I think I may have been talking to a an old friend that I hadn't met yet. There were two moons out that night, shining through the thick summer night haze. I didn't think anything was unusual at first, but then I started to feel as if something wasn't quite right about things, although I couldn't put my finger on it. Once I realised that impossibility of two moons in the sky, I realised that I was dreaming! I kept my cool together, so I wouldn't wake up, and took in my surroundings, talked to people who have already passed on, checked out the awesome apartment, glided in the air around the neighbourhood, and the like.


And in the morning am I going to wake up and realize that I only dreamt that I posted this spoiler?
