My Hubby - The Bad Guy

My husband tried to kill me last night, but I lived to blog about it today.

You see, the mafia was after me. They tracked me down to where I was living in a quiet town with my sweet little family. They demanded my life. I was terrified. A cold sweat trickled down my back while I tried to devise a plan to escape alive - and keep my family safe at the same time. And what did my hubby do? He tried to shove me out a window so they'd have easier access to me without harming the kids.

Thanks, sweetie.

It's always a different scenario involving either a plot to leave me (slutty girlfriends galore have paraded through my dreams), throw me out to the piranhas (Literally. I didn't want to go near a pool for a couple weeks after that one) or kill me off  (Hubby's signature dish: homemade ice cream laced with poison).

Poor hubby doesn't know what to think about all these violent dreams. Especially after years of them. In reality, he's the most amazing man. My best friend. We are so in-sync, we rarely have an argument and each night, he holds my hand as we fall asleep.

Personally, I think because he's my hero in every day life, my subconscious needs to spice things up in dreamland.

Yesterday, hubby made an interesting comment though. He asked if I've written down my dreams because they'd be interesting for book plots.


I have a new goal. I want to write a whole series of books that are based off different ways my hubby has tried to kill me off. I could fill an entire bookshelf. How funny would that be? You never know where (or how) inspiration will strike.

Would you like to comment?

Did you ask him if really he's a secret spy? Maybe your subconscious is trying to tell you something. . .

dun. dun . dun. . .dun!

:) Just kidding. Yeah I have a lot of crazy dreams and a lot of "dream" content goes into my writing.

I think that's a terrific idea for a wonderful series. It reminds me a little of an old 1960's or 70's movie called, "How to Murder you Wife." Your dreams are even better than mine, but I do have the occasional he's-cheating-on-me dream (not true at all) that have been so realistic I've had to resist the impulse to reach over and slap him. Then I wake up fully and laugh.

I love it! Hey, Stephen King made a career of writing books based upon his dreams.

Ha ha, I think he's a secret CIA agent and they think you are the bad guy (gal) who has all the nations secrets and you're trying to sell them off - kill her before she succeeds, is their motto!
Great post. I enjoyed it!!!

Great book series idea, Danyelle! I don't remember my dreams. That may be a good things or maybe I'm missing out on an opportunity to discover a new book idea. Guess I'll just have to enjoy yours!

Sara said...

Ha! That is awesome! I think you totally should write them all down.

Gosh, I never took John for the murdering type--good to know. LOL!Reminds me of that movie I saw on TV, A Perfect Murder, with Michael Douglas and Gwyneth Paltrow. Now that was scary good!

Ahh, and he looks so sweet on the outside. Just goes to show you can't see the inner pyschopath from the outside.

Mwa-ha-ha-ha*cough, sputter, cough* I just don't have the right kind of voice to pull off an evil laugh.

I get so many cool ideas from scary dreams. I almost always try to right them down. I don't often use them straight, but my word choice and pacing helps me when I want to evoke fear and terror in a scene.

I laugh because I under-STAND!! And then I laugh because I've met your husband! (Can't really blame that sweet guy for your weird dreams, ...or can you?)

Can't wait to read the first one! Put me on the list to do a review.


Oh, by the way - I'm back to being a writer. My six month break did me good, but I just couldn't stay away! Drop by the blog sometime and say hello. :)
