Would you tell me what "lulu" in the following passage mean?
Well, I was havin' a nightmare. A lulu, too. You know this mountain range is supposed to be a sleeping woman. I dreamed she was lying there all peaceful when a big mouse that looked like Carstairs came sneaking along, and she jumped up and let out a screech and shook her skirts, and the whole damned town fell into the canyon.
My dictionary says "lulu" means "something very good or exciting", but this does not seem to fit in with "nightmare". I appreciate any comments and suggestions. Thank you!
It also means something BIG, as in a terrifying nightmare.
