August 28, 2012 MY HORRIBLE BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHTMARE! School started this week, and I’m SO bummed out! I HATE when the summer ends!! I had this horrible nightmare on Sunday night. In my dream, I showed up to school NAKED, wearing one of those Yoda backpacks. So basically, I had NOTHING on except this furry thing hanging on my back! As soon as I got into school, I saw MacKenzie wearing this tight designer dress with MASSIVE high heels. I mean, it looked like she was on stilts. And she had this weird makeup on her face. Her eyes were covered in dark eyeliner, like a squirrel, and she had lipstick all over her face, like the Joker. She started walking toward me while laughing, like a demonic giraffe in a dress, and I was totally terrified! There was this huge plant in the hallway near me, so I grabbed some massive leaves and made myself a little skirt and a top. All of a sudden, everything turned to slow motion, and she said in a super deep voice, “Nice dress DORK! Make like a plant and LEAVE!!!” OMG I thought she was going to crush me with her super pointy stilt shoe! Then all of a sudden I saw Brandon, at the other end of the hallway. He looked SO cute! He was practically glowing, with this big bright light around him. And he was surrounded by puppies and kittens, and they were all looking at up at him like he was a god or something. MacKenzie turned around and started batting her freakishly long eyelashes at him. Then she sashayed over to him. I HATE it when she sashays!! She was, like, three feet taller than him, and the puppies and kittens looked terrified. All of a sudden they all started making growling noises and forming a wall around Brandon. They went from being totally cute little hairballs to tiny werewolves ready to attack! Then two of the puppies ran toward me and turned into Chloe and Zoey! Zoey said, “Nikki, thank God you’re here!” And then Chloe said, “Hopefully it’s not too late!” I looked down at my hands, and they were starting to turn furry. And then I tried to say something, but a bark came out of my mouth. Then Chloe and Zoey turned back into puppies and started whimpering. MacKenzie looked over and screamed, “YOU TWO!!” Right then the lights went out and I couldn’t see anything, so I opened a random locked and hopped inside. Except I wasn’t just in a locker…I was in my backyard! And Brianna was splashing around in the kiddie pool. When she opened her mouth to talk, she sounded like Mickey Mouse, and she said, “Stay with me Nikki! Let’s have fun!” All of a sudden I heard banging on the other side of the locker, and Chloe screaming, “HURRY UP!! LET US IN!!” So of course I opened it, but it wasn’t Chloe at all…it was MacKenzie! And she pulled me back into the locker like she was going to eat my head or something. Right then I woke up all sweaty and breathless. That dream TOTALLY freaked me out! The good news is that the first day of school wasn’t anywhere near as bad as that!! I’ll tell you all about it on Thursday! How’s school for YOU so far?
