I don't remember a lot of my dreams, let alone my dreams as a child, but I do remember at least a couple dreams about waking up and seeing a grotesque face in the ceiling, staring at me. Scared the crap out of me at the time, and I never forgot them.

I just assumed that it was a common childhood nightmare that DFW included for realism.

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, although correct me if I'm wrong, as I don't have the book in front of me, but didn't Hal say that he had that dream when he was 12 or 13, which would be the same year (if 12) or at least after Himself's "felo de se" where Hal also found a face on the floor for real, so to speak?
