Sometimes at night I get stuck in that weird world between awake and asleep. I can dream while still (just) awake and see things in the room where I am at that moment.
This ... is not good. Because when you flash on something it can freak you out. I try my best to avoid magic thinking, but even I will sleep with the light on after one of these episodes because I am scared I will conjure something worse in the dark.
Fairly innocuous right?
Well try "seeing" her facing the corner in your room and not making a sound.
Brrrr. Freaked the shit out of me. And the preceding night's effort was blood red script running across the switched off TV screen.
I hate those kind of dreams :(
Still, at least it wasn't that clown dream...
