The Man In The Sheet

When I was little, I had this reoccurring dream.  I would get out if bed for some reason and find myself being attacked by a man with a white sheet covering his whole body.  You know how kids used to make cheapo ghost costumes by throwing a white sheet over themselves?  I was terrified by this man.  He would grapple with me like he wanted to throw me to the floor.  I associate this dream with shame, like it was only happening because of something wrong I'd done.  These days, I don't lose any sleep over it.

That guy should have been ashamed of himself! Maybe it was just that he was grown and shouldn't have been interested in scaring a little girl.

huuuuummmmmm..... seems to me that the shame would be that of the person covered by the sheet.... course I'm no psychologist... <br />
just gotta say every time that I do love the way you write!
