When I was little, I was scared of EVERYTHING. No joke. Everything! You name it, I was scared of it. I remember nights when it started to get dark, my stomach would start to hurt. I hated sleeping because I was so scared. It could be the thought of an earthquake that scared me, the thought of a ghost, maybe a bad person coming into my home….whatever it was it all scared me! My mom ended up making some magic potion that saved my life. She called it “Dragon Spray”. Each night before bed she would spray it in mine and my sibling’s rooms. It helped me sleep in peace! There are times that I will smell something that smells like dragon spray and it will instantly make me think of that wonderful spray! Years later I now know that the spray was water and some stinky perfume all mixed together in a big bottle!
