"Did You Know?
Long ago, the word nightmare designated an evil spirit that made its victims feel like they were suffocating in their sleep (prompting physician-botanist William Turner to introduce "a good remedy agaynst the stranglyng of the nyght mare" in 1562). By the early 1700s, the Age of Reason had arrived, nightmares were bad dreams, and "daymare" was a logically analogous choice when English speakers sought a word for a frightening and uncontrollable fantasy, a run-away daydream. And since the 1800s, when Charles Dickens wrote "a monstrous load that I was obliged to bear, a daymare that there was no possibility of breaking in, a weight that brooded on my wits" in David Copperfield, we’ve been using "daymare" figuratively. For example, today we might refer to "a logistical daymare.""
This morning when I awoke and started ambling along, remembering the inauguration to come in six days, I had a daymare!
I remembered when I was 12 years old, practicing in air raid drills, how to become prepared for bombs coming from Russia! I remembered how me and my classmates hid under our desks during those air raid drills! It was the Fifties after all!! The age of bomb shelters and air raid drills!!
The daymare went like this! We have finally been bombed, and, indeed, the bomb apparently did get discharged from Russia. After all these years, the bomb has finally been launched, and has landed, in the form of Donald Trump, delivered after all these years, despite detente and all that!
What a daymare, it is!!
