Nostalgic Nightmares

13 May

When i was young, i used to love watching television.  The commercials also managed to keep my attention for a while, especially the McDonalds and Kids Crete Sparkling toothpaste commercials.

That is until i had a nightmare featuring the kids Crest Sparkling Toothpaste blob and Ronald McDonald…together.

I usually am reminded of this dream a couple of times a year, then forget about it in time.  Tonight, however, while painting my nails, my topcoat smelled of the kids create toothpaste from my youth and i was taken back to the morning i awoke, clutching a heart shaped pillow mygrndmother had made for me…which was also part of the dream…and was also disposed of shortly thereafter.

I had watched the wizard of oz a LOT as a kid, so it was no surprise that this nightmare took place in my own fantasy Kansas world.  A tornado had chased me, and with it, the pillow had somehow worked itself in to be a villain. This was only half unsettling.

Enter Ronald McDonald and the Blob.  They both claimed that my life would be saved from the tornado if i would only marry one of them.

For what felt like hours, they hounded my dream that night, each taking an arm and pulling me, forcing me to pick which one of them I’d marry.

To this day, just the sight of either character brings an evil shiver to my spine and has me wanting my mommy. 

Probably the reason why i don’t  care for clowns.  I’m not particularly scared of clowns…i just don’t like them.

Do you guys remember the blob?  Go YouTube him if you don’t know what I’m talking about, and get an idea of what i fear.  Picture him dueling it out with Ronald for my hand, and picture yourself as an 8 year old girl.

I haven’t yet had a dream about the only other character from my childhood that scares me…the McDonalds man-in-the-moon Guy.  For an extra spooky encounter, go look him up, too.

I assure you, once you see it…it can’t be unseen.

*shivers and whimpers*
