    Interesting answer! Lost on the bed. Hmm. But it makes perfect sense when I think back to what it felt like to be a child.

    That sounds terrifying, indeed! I wonder if you'd seen them in a movie or cartoon when you were very young. Sometimes, we can only wonder. :)

    Big mouths with rows of gleaming teeth. Those movies definitely make an impression on young minds, don't they? I was too old for these movies to affect me, but I can't imagine having been a child when they came out.

    That is an intense nightmare. Manipulation and powerlessness--the core of many a nightmare.
