There be's monsters in them closet's!

Years ago, before it was proven that monsters did actually lurk in closet's (Monsters Inc.)

I was called upon by the wee ones to do battle with a particularly evil monster. This monster had been, for some time upsetting my wee ones and despite my best effort to dispel the beast, there he lurked.

This night I decided to end this problem forever. When I was notified of the presence I immediatly launched into battle. Throwing the door wide open I dove right in. Scuffeling and cursing and knocking things about. Armed with a plastic baseball bat, the clothes came down in a heap and all the stuff that was in came out.

I emerged a wink later and declared the monster vanquished. The wee one took a look and indeed the monster had gone.
Although we remained at a heightened sense of readyness, The monster never returned.

Make of it, What you will!
