I use to get nightmares frequently when I was a kid.
I'd watch monster movies on TV - Dracula, Frankenstein, the Werewolf - and would take them to bed with me in my head.
Recently I can't help wondering if the nightmares have returned - or to be more specific - I think I'm stuck in an ongoing nightmare featuring Donald Trump.
The weird thing is millions of other people seem to be stuck in the same nightmare with me:
A con man, racist, world class liar, reality show personality, and woman-hater, Donald Trump, is close to Hillary Clinton in the polls, and could be our next president!
I can't believe I just said that. There's no way a majority of Americans are that far gone that they would elect Trump president.
As a kid I use to go into the bathroom at night after having a nightmare, and I'd turn on the light, and lay down on the floor. Safe from monsters.
The same thing will happen in November when Trump loses the election. A light will come on, and we'll all realize it was a just a bad dream.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
