Bedtime Stories

It was fun looking up which foods cause nightmares.

I love stories that people tell as if they’re true. I think the bloody hook is the classic, and it always seems to have happened to a neighbors cousin’s hairdresser’s car mechanic (the more boring and correct term for such sources is “friend of a friend”). It’s fun to think this story predates the automobiles in which countless teenagers have left their secluded parking spots after hearing a noise, only to find the bloody hook of a local murderer hanging from the door. Maybe the Egyptians tell of finding such appendages on their chariots.

The really honest-and-for-true story of Frankenstein continues next time. You’ll find that your English teacher was just plain wrong about this book.
