Don’t be alarmed, ladies and gentlemen.

Over at Ghost Hunting Theories, there is talk of nightmares and things that stalk you in your dreams.

Believe it or not, I was once a small person.  During this brief period of my life, I would often have dreams of King Kong, that bad ass giant ape.

However, I was not having nightmares.

Even back in those days, I was more of a night person.  I was usually still wide awake when it was time for bed.  I would climb into bed and ponder life, the universe and almost everything (hey, I was small, I didn’t know everything like I do now).

Lying down with eyes closed tight, I could hear the rhythmic thumping of my heartbeat in my head.

thump thump….thump thump

I would think of Kong.  Drifting in that space between wakefulness and deep sleep.  I would see Kong making his way down the street toward my house….his footfalls making a low “thump thump” sound as he got nearer.

And I would fall fully into dreamland, happy that the glorious King of the Apes was coming over to see me.
