    In the middle of this morning around an hour

    before I wanted to get up, I was awoken by loud banging and shouting, I peered put my window to see what all the commotion was and it was an angry man smashing a front door in with a wheelybin and cursing at someone, I guessed a female. It brought back a rush of terror in me and...

    Nice.

    Sometimes, when your life gets too tough and you need someone special to be, under a blanket is usually my favourite place to be. I somehow feel alone with my thoughts and so on. It's a nice feeling.

    I did this when I was a boy to overcome fears about the night sounds I'd hear. Now, I usually only do this in Winter so I can get warm! :-) :-/ Hehe Those blankets DO really feel nice, though....

    I Don't Think Its "Hiding"

    but I like to be covered up when I sleep.  Extra pillows usually do the trick.  I love to sleep on and under pillows.

    When there are monsters lurking in every shadow

    and strange noises coming from the street, what else would one do? Call me childish, but these things called blankets protect me from murderers, I swear! Or at least my most frightening imagination ;)
