THIS REALLY HAPPENED


Several nights ago I screamed and screamed. Ron heard my desperate pleas coming from our den. He was in our home office and grabbed the only weapon he could reach -- a pair of scissors -- and rushed to my aid.

Ron found his damsel-in-distress sound asleep on the couch. I was screaming my lungs out. Ron could not see that a frightening entity had levitated me and was floating after me around the room. The demon did not heed my pleading and I could not take back control of my senses.

Sir "Ron" Lancelot with his Excalibur scissors awakened me, thus slaying my mind's intruder. Ah, my hero!


(I had watched a movie that day entitled DRAG ME TO HELL. Maybe that had some influence on my dreams. Duh. Scary movies are my roller coaster rides and this one was a doozy!)

  2. I avoid films like this, for that reason!

    Glad Mr Scissor Hands came to the rescue!

  3. Lynn -- My husband always asks "Why?". He avoid all films, especially stupid horror flicks. I can't explain my addiction but I always pay dearly.

    Joe -- You are too funny. "Mr. Scissor Hands", how clever.

  4. I feel for you, sister. I hate those kinds of dreams. I used to watch those movies, but not anymore. I stick to reading the books instead, and NO pictures, lol.

  5. I love that your hero was right there for you, ready to slay the dragons.

    I have an overly-active imagination and a great memory so me and scary movies do not mix - lol!

  6. EXACTLY why I don't watch such movies. I prefer to sleep peacefully.

  7. I don't care for scary movies. They don't scare me, I just don't like them. And I rarely have nightmares, but when I do, they're usually reality based, so they seem that much more real.

    It's amazing how real those nightmares can seem at the time though, and they produce real physical reactions! I hate to wake up gasping for breath with my heart about to beat out of my chest! ;o)

  10. Bonnie -- Now that my children are grown I have to watch these movies by myself. They tell their friends that they aren't afraid of any movies because I raised them on horror shows.

    Talon -- I too have an overactive imagination and should give up scary movies but I'm hooked. I guess it will be okay as long as I have the dragon slayer.

    Quilly -- I think I actually like nightmares and sometimes I try to write them down if I awaken during the night. The only problem is in the morning I can't read what I wrote.

    Diane -- The worst nightmare I had was when I dreamed I was having a heart attack only it turned out not to be a dream.

    Riot Kitty -- That's the good thing about choices.

    Cube -- Well it looks like it's just the two of us. And not only do we both like scary movies, we both pulled April Fools jokes. Hum, some might think we need help. LOL

  11. I can't watch scary movies! NO WAY!! I always end up hiding under the covers whimpering.

  12. Like you I watch horror flicks and pay for them later (with my subconscious mind).

    Whatever you do, DO NOT watch "Boxing Helena!"

  13. Dani -- I end up hiding under the covers too but that is WHY I like those dumb movies.

    Ily -- Well now I have to watch Boxing Helena since you told me not to. I'm a rebel:)
