Daydreams help me get through the twin terrors of a deadly pandemic raging out of control, and a toxic Trump presidency.
There's some things you just can't change. I get that. Making a habit of running from reality isn't a good idea either, unless you're a Trump follower.
No. A daydream, here or there, can invigorant a person by putting them in control even if it is wishful thinking. I get a personal jolt imagining scenarios like the following:
**Trump loses the election and refuses to leave the Oval Office so FBI agents have to put him in a straight jacket and a Hannibal Lecter mask, and wheel him out on a hand cart down the front portico of the White House with every news agency in the world covering the humiliating moment!
**Mitch McConnel and wife Elaine Chao, are exposed as traitors. Moscow Mitch for his criminal collusion with Russian businesses, and Chao for being an agent for Communist China. They're both convicted and sentenced to the harshest prisons in the land. I'm talking Super Max here.
**Matt Gaetz is stopped for a driver violation - let's say DUI...oh! Wait a moment! That's already happened. I got it. Gaetz is caught and sentenced to prison for running his own child porn website featuring alt right creeps molesting children and animals.
**Just before a nationally televised interview someone slips a fast-acting truth serum to Republican senator James Lankford. He's interviewed by Anderson Cooper who asks him revealing questions about Trump, and other GOP goons in Congress and sinks like a canary!
**Trump catches COVID-19 but doesn't die. However, he has to be isolated in a mental institution for the criminally insane/ICU room - without his cell phone, TV, or radio. His daily visits are from liberal Hispanic and Black nurses wearing VOTE BIDEN badges.
**Mike Pence gets caught cheating on his wife! Oh yeah! This is a fun one. Turn's out that Pence and Bill Barr are secret lovers and get caught exchanging blows in Trump's bunker beneath the White House. The same infamous bunker that Donnie "inspected" a while ago.
**The Ohio State wrestling team sex scandal is still in the courts and the prosecution calls Republican Rep. Jim "Gym" Jordan to the stand to give his testimony on what he saw going on between the team doctor and young wrestlers in the showers. The good part comes before his testimony when a dozen credible firsthand witnesses say that not only did Jordan know what was going on... he was also molesting them!
**Fox News team stories like Tucker Carlson's unnatural addiction to being spanked and whipped by Laura Ingraham in a Nazi uniform.
Brian Kilmeade reading poems about Trump and Rudy Giuliani's erotic adventures in the Ukraine to a group of young Republicans in drag.
In summary, daydreams stimulate serotonin in a time when feeling good is at a premium.
