Real Nightmares: Knock, Knock

Don't Open the Door!

I’ve had this recurring nightmare as long as I can remember.

I’m sitting in the living room of my parent’s house, and even though I’m 30 years old now, I’m always a child (perhaps seven or eight) in this setting. Someone knocks at the door and I go through the kitchen and into the laundry room, to answer it. I never see the person, or whatever it is, but a voice says, “You’ve just made the biggest mistake of your life.” The door slams open and I try to shut it but whatever is on the other side is stronger than I am. My parents come to my aid to try and shut the door but none of us can hold it shut and soon my parents are screaming, “Why would you answer the door?!”

And then I wake up. Every time, the same thing.

Have fun answering the door this year for Trick ‘r Treaters…
