Last night I had a nightmare. There was no one chasing me. My children were in no peril. I was not being harmed in any way. Readers, I dreamt that it was Christmas Eve. I dreamt that it was Christmas Eve and that I had forgotten to put up a Christmas Tree.
In the dream I searched for and finally found my artificial tree, but it would not light. It was late and the stores were all closed. I found a Christmas Tree lot, but all that was left were gnarled branches. I found a store open but the cart wouldn't push.
It went on and on like that until I woke up.
It was the most pathetic nightmare of my life.
