That Place Between Sleeping and Awake
I lifted the covers to get out of bed, and I saw what I really hope was only a lingering dream image.
A giant spider, I'm talkin' the size of my hand, scurried away from me, from under the covers, across the mattress.
Drowsy beyond belief, I stumbled out of bed, rubbed my eyes, and shook out all the covers, whimpering at not being more alert.
I found no traces of my arachnid guest, and I suppose I'll never know if I dreamed it or not.
If it was a dream, it was more of a hallucination occurring after waking, which doesn't happen very often. I wonder what it could mean.
And if it was real...well, I just flat don't want to even think about it!
