Down along the coast of South Carolina there's a creature called Boo. Everyone knows of it and no one wants to meet it. The way to avoid the dreaded Boo? Don't fall asleep.

Down along the coast of South Carolina, the people of the Sea Islands have a name for that dream that some of them have.  They call it the “Boo,” and it’s been around for a very long time.  As long as anyone can remember.  And the strange thing is that, just in this area, in the Sea Islands, the descriptions of the Boo are so consistent, even from people who have never heard of this dream-creature before.  If it is a dream.  But if it is a dream, no one has it for very long.  They get rid of it, or… or the other way around.
