Monday Judgements and Warnings

Not that I’m an expert on night terrors or anything but I can safely say that if you wake up at that 4:22 AM haunted hour and you’re feeling like your eyeballs are two bright shining beams that are telegraphing your every last yucky thought out into the universe—MAKE NO MISTAKE—you’d be wise to NOT get up and wander downstairs for a drink of water in the pitch black while catching a glimpse of the 879 foot tall junipers that sway outside your window, mistaking them for several giant murderers waiting to take your life and the life of your family members by storming your cozy homestead and smothering you with their abundance of needles.

Then That Happened,

    Oh yeah, know it well. The shadows you don’t think should be there, the pile of clothes that takes on other forms…..yeah, I get that one.

    Don’t know your history, or anything about you (only looked at this post, never been here before), but I’ve seen charlie in the back yard at 3am, creeping up. Seen a lot of stuff that never happened.

      Mike, I hear you. During that creepy totally alone hour there are a lot of unsettling things that your brain can conjure.

    I am not a fan of adrenaline rushes. Had way too many.

  3. That’s why I keep a glass of water on my nightstand.

    oh, cupcake. the worst time of the night to awaken awash with sweat and panic. and then the junipers! of course, maybe that rush of cortisol-riddled fear of junipers pushed out all the imaginary fears your brain was busy conjuring, no?
