hold me

Do you have nightmares? Ever wake up in the night confused and scared?
I rarely have nightmares. My dreams are usually pleasant and fun; often not rated for family audiences.
My dreams are also generally foggy when I awake, so I only remember small details of last nights bad dreams...

I remember having a feeling of disarray, I was wandering sort of aimlessly. It was as if I had no where to go and that I was all alone. I seem to recall there was destruction around me - perhaps some sort of natural disaster or war... I am unclear.
I don't think I was wounded but I was certainly feeling the affects of the dire situation. My legs felt rubbery and my heart heavy. I am certain my hair was a mess.
It was then that I realized I was carrying something.
I was carrying bulbs.
Light bulbs.
With horror it slowly dawned on me - they were halogen bulbs!!!

You do realize that touching a halogen bulb with your hands GREATLY reduces its bulb life.
Oh the horror of it...!

The other thing about halogen bulbs is that they use a lot of energy, which makes them less green. They sure are bright, though...

Well, interesting, yes? I mean, you are obviously trying to shed some light on a serious situation in your life but it sort of scares you to do so to.

Sorry...I analyze everything. It is a habit and I was paid to do just that for sooooo long.

Shaking my head... You might want to stick with those "not rated for family audiences" dreams! :)

Did you do an 'Uncle Fester' and light one up by sticking it in your mouth?

That is a nightmare. There must be some nightmare virus going around.

I don't think I've ever, ever seen anyone work in a helpful hint so masterfully.

Horror, indeed! I hope there wasn't water running somewhere in the backdrop of your dream, too...
