Where the wild things are

When you're the world's biggest scaredy cat, and you're watching Twin Peaks in a storm, and the episode finishes in a timely David Lynch cliff hanger, do not expect to get much sleep. In fact, expect to spend most of the night listening for things that aren't there, making sure the doors are locked, that the blankets are pulled up tight under your chin so that nothing can get you, and then wondering why a cupboard door, which would have no reason to be opening, would be capable of pushing itself open and shut a fraction every time the wind tries to blow itself inside out. Expect to reason with yourself, many many times, that it's just your overactive imagination in ADD hyperdrive, and that really, monsters do not exist.
Despite what David Lynch may be trying to tell you.
