This was meant to be blogged yesterday!
How did I forget?
Oh well! Doing it now.
The ATC was made just didn't get round to posting it.
The word is NIGHTMARE.
This is representative of all those bad feelings you get when having a nightmare!
Sharp, prickly, tense, vivid, jangling, broken, cracked, etc etc.
Let's hope the next word is kinder to me!
