it turns out that ignoring the mosters in the closet and under the bed does not work.  i've always just ignored them.  more like, i pretended they weren't there.  jump from the edge of the rug to the bed... out of arms' reach.  leave the door cracked so the monster could sneak out with no threat of "waking" me with the sound of the door latch.  close my eyes tight and pretend there is no one there.  there are no monsters in the closet.

turns out ignoring the monster doesn't make it go away.  instead he just gets cozy and stays.


if i let him.
