Monsters have been given a bad reputation by ax murderers and psycho killers, who hide under your bed in wait for sinister reasons.
Contrary to popular belief, monsters hide under the bed for more reasons than just to wait for you to go to sleep so they can terrorize you. In the summer, the coolest place in the house is under the bed in the shade. There’s also usually an air conditioning vent somewhere close by, which can provide direct heat in the winter. And don’t forget, some under-the-beds have portals to other dimensions, or an entrance to the underworld – prime real estate for monsters with good connections.
True, some monsters are playful, and try to grab your ankles, or pull you under the bed to play with them. But so do toddlers.
So don’t judge all monsters by the actions of a few sinister humans, or the occasional sinister monster. Sometimes they just need a place to hide, and what better place is there than under the bed?
