As a moppet he was never afraid of the dark, he never understood that fear. From the start he knew this non-specific creature of terror wasn’t real; It was his mom’s attempt to modify his behavior. “If you don’t behave the boogeyman will get you.” He would challenge her and ask, “What is a boogeyman, mom?” She could never describe him nor tell him what the boogeyman would do to him if caught. Nevertheless, the threats continued: “Son, if you misbehave Santa will fill your stocking with coal.” Of course, they never happened. They were fibs but lies just the same.
