Conlang Dream

I had a dream that I was watching a program on the upcoming
baseball season so that I could bet on it (I believe).  I was watching
a special on a particular player who was new on a team based in
Jamaica, I think.  His parents were a man and a spider.  He looked
human (normal human skin, features, etc.), except he had six arms.
He was really buff.  I guess they didn't seem to think he had an
unfair advantage, 'cause they let him play.

Anyway, they were asking him questions, and he responded in
a conlang.  It was written on a screen, and I realized--in the dream--
that this wasn't a real language, so I was going to read what was
their and memorize the whole thing for when I woke up, but I
only got *one* sentence in when my girlfriend woke me up to
tell me she was leaving--and then the dream was gone.  Nevertheless,
that one sentence is as follows:

Mi ina uhqo.  "I'm from Qo."

It's not very long, and certainly not very creative (I expect more
from my unconscious self!), but it's something.  It was clear to me
that "mi" meant "I" in my dream.  You can see "qo" in there, with
some kind of prefix, which probably takes care of the "from".
"Ina" I guess is some kind of copula.  Like I said, not very creative.

Anyway, that just happened, so I wanted to share.  Anyone else
remember any of their conlang dreams?
