A bit of magic

Home 'Improvement'

Lloyd and I watched “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium”, and there was a nice scene where the little boy puts glow-in-the-dark stars all over Mr. Magorium’s hospital room so he has ‘enough space to sleep’. Lloyd and I exchanged knowing glances.

See, years ago – before we had a website – I devalued our house by taking a bottle (with a squeeze tip) of glow-in-the-dark stuff and dabbing hundreds (because that’s the key – hundreds) of tiny dots on the ceiling in our bedroom, Brad’s room, and Lloyd’s closet. They are invisible when the lights are on, but when the lights go out: Zowie!

At least, I guess it’s ‘zowie’. I’m blind as a bat and always have my glasses off before I turn out my light, so I just see some dim glowing.

Lloyd assures me that we are floating in space, though.
