When I was a kid I had my fair share of bad dreams. My most common scary dreams included Freddy Kreuger, tornadoes and the clown from the movie It. I had a lot of fears about boogie men under my bed, and was scared to get up to go to the bathroom at night because something might get me. Not sure exactly where all this fear came from.
I can't remember the last time I had a scary dream. I usually have stupid dreams, ones that make me laugh or feel dumb. Except every now and again I will have a dream about work....that I slept in, or missed an appointment, and I feel awful.
Anyway, last night I had a dream about a clown. At the start of the dream I was walking in my parents neighbourhood, where I grew up. All of a sudden I heard a voice, it sounded like it was over a bullhorn or something. A very creepy voice that said something to the effect of, "I am going to get you Will." Will is my 3 year old nephew. I started running to see where Will was, and where this evil sounding voice came from. I rounded a corner and saw this evil clown. Will was nowhere in sight. I think the clown was trying to lure me in. I felt a lot of fear when I saw the clown but went over and asked where Will was, what he had done with him. He said soemthing about just wanting to get me. So I tried to run away, but he caught up to me. After I realized I couldn't outrun him, I decided to try to defend myself. We ended up in a fist fight, and I beat him up pretty good. I don't remember exactly what happened after that. But somehow the police became involved. I went down the police station to share my side of the story. When I got there the clown had taken off the makeup and costume and was actually a woman. I told my side of the story, and she told hers. The police didn't believe me, and believed her.......after that I don't remember much, but it was a really disturbing upsetting dream. I woke up at about 5:30am from the dream and didn't think I would get back to sleep. But I did, thankfully.
I have never cared for clowns. Always thought they were creepy. Now I like them even less :P
