Follow your dreams! The green potholder is out there somewhere...

I think it is a Strindberg reference or rather parody. It is about things (often green) that are wished for in "A Dream Play". This might of course prove to be a far fetched theory.

Quite fitting that the word pot is used in that sentence.

Surely a potholder cannot be that exclusive...

I was close to writing "exists" and thought, Duo would have written " eksisterer" in this case, so I just wrote "is only in xour dreams", comparing to "findts der en apotek, is there a pharmacy" and it was rated as wrong. Annoying...

Not having a point of reference, this is one of the most outré sentences I have read.
