When I was little, I was absolutely terrified of the dark. I had this picture of Jesus on my bedroom wall, but in the dark, the shadows made Him look like the Wicked Witch of the West. To this day, I can’t look at that picture without hearing “I’m melting! Melting!. . .” But I digress. I was convinced that monsters were lurking in every dark corner of my bedroom, in the closet, and especially under the bed.
I would make my parents prove to me every night at bedtime that there was not, in fact, a monster crouching in the dark ready to pounce on me as soon as they tucked me in. Even still, I would take a flying leap into my bed from the other side of the room just so that my feet would not be in vulnerable proximity to the resident monster under my bed.
If only my parents (and I) had been equipped with Monster Spray. This top secret, highly effective potion (aka water) is a must-have for any household with children under the age of 10- or maybe even just for people who don’t like being home alone (I don’t judge- I am one of them).
