We read somewhere that a flashlight was really just a plastic tube to store dead batteries inside. And boy, do we monsters know it?
We thrive in the darkness. Flashlights do not. This is why we will always win.
If you want our advice, don’t take the time to fidget through the utility drawer and find a flashlight when you’re being chased. It won’t do you any good. You’re just losing a little more of the head start you have.
And you’re going to end up caught and in the dark anyway. So, leave the flashlight behind and just run. Either way, you lose.
