INTRODUCTION… My very first dream (p)

I would like to begin this morning by telling you about the very first dream I can remember. It is not a long dream. I honestly do not know how old I was when I had this dream, I think I was in first or second grade. The setting of the dream is my back yard. I am sitting at a picnic table playing and all of a sudden I feel the vibrations of large steps coming toward me. One large stomp after another. Pretty soon, Godzilla or King Kong or some other huge monster comes over the trees and spots me sitting at the picnic table. I scream in fear and wonder where I should go. I naturally duck under the table to hide from the monster. The monster walks over to the table, stares down, and steps right on the table… squishing me. Then I woke up. Exciting huh?
