40. The Boiler Room
When my kid was four, we were watching a documentary on the Titanic. The scene was a picture of the boiler room and the camera panned from left to right. He pointed at the TV and said, “That’s wrong. The boilers were on the other side, and I was right here.” He pointed to a small space in the boiler room. “That’s where I was. And that’s why I don’t like water now.”
41. The Man Outside The Window
When my son was young, he came and climbed into bed with us, crying. I asked him what was wrong. He said that the big fat man with a bloody hole in his head kept trying to open his window.
42. Roger’s Last Day
My little brother’s imaginary friend, Roger, lived under our coffee table. Roger had a wife and nine kids. Roger and his family lived peacefully alongside us for three years. One day, my little brother announced that Roger wouldn’t be around anymore, since he shot and killed himself and his whole family.
