I know Halloween is past, but I still have this recurring dream/nightmare. I see it so vividly in my sleep. (Cue scary music). I wake up hearing noise downstairs in the living room. I slowly make my way out of the bedroom to the hallway. I can make out several people moving around making their way to the couch. I hear a haunting voice calling out, "Daddy......Daddy.....Daddy." I'm thinking "Oh my gosh, one of my children needs me." I run down the stairs and I see, of course, in that spooky glowing darkness you see in the movies, my daughter Ashley. Actually, I see not one, but 4 Ashley's. All 4 have a rather serious look on their faces. What is going on here, I think. Then..........., she speaks. The tone of her voice changes from a soft angelic voice to a deep disturbing voice. Out of all 4 Ashley's in sync come the words, " I NEED MY ALLOWANCE QUADRUPLED." Oh, the symbolism.
