wvalady1968: Pecker's Dream in Color thread prompted this. What's your scary nightmare? I don't mean the "naked in a crowd" or the "Duh, Dude, didn't you know the final was today?" nightmares. Which ones scare you enough to wake you up? Sweating and heart racing? In mine, I'm on a high place, like the top of the water tower near my childhood home. And everyone I love best in the world is there, too. We're sitting on the metal steps enjoying the sunset over the valley. Then I notice that the metal steps are separating from the water tower, and we're only seconds plummeting to the hard scrapple below. I have enough time to think, "Do I tell the others and scare them into a panic that will accelerate the whole process??" Then I awaken.
