That was Then, This is Now

When I was a kid, I was so nervous about monsters underneath my bed, that I was unable to get out of bed in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. I either stayed up all night, holding it in, or I wet the bed.

Out of compassion, my parents went to Radio Shack and bought a mini radar and placed it under my bed. It came with a radar screen that sat on my night table. When I woke up and had to pee, I would check out the radar screen.

Some nights I would see that the area under my bed was monster free and proceeded happily to the bathroom. Other nights, the radar detected monsters, and I would just wait until they were gone.

I still use it today, but that’s just in case I wake up in the middle of the night and I’m feeling lonely and want someone to talk to.
