The History of Elsweyr – Elder Scrolls Lore

The Khajiit/Khajiiti proverb/saying about the name/naming of Elsweyr from The Elder Scrolls video game franchise/lore.

But Can You Beat Me In Fighting?

All that I can remember of this dream is that it involved either a female alien or a female humanoid entity or a strange woman.

At some point the female alien/entity or woman met a man who looked like or was a younger version (maybe him from the 1970s) of John Travolta, and at some point they were in maybe a 1950s style diner (with maybe some modern updates) talking.

The John Travolta-like man was the lady’s man type, and was flirting a bit maybe and/or was just pretty confident and cool.

I was in the dream at this point, and somehow she learned about (someone one told her about it) a quote/saying/motto/slogan/quip/phrase that maybe my former male classmate AJ (who died recently) used to say sometimes in response to people in certain situations which was:

But can you beat me in fighting?

He and/or another one of my former male classmates liked to use that phrase to win an argument if all else fails. 😀

The alien or woman and the John Travolta-like man were still talking as I listened and did whatever I was doing there, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,
