The lesser of two evils

Abigail always sleeps on the very edge of her bed, the edge next to Catherine’s trundle bed.  In my opinion, this is so she and Catherine can play and whisper and all that jazz, but if you ask her, it’s because the other side of the bed is scary.  She always says that she’s afraid there will be crocodiles over there.  Tonight, when her daddy was tucking her in, she expounded on this a little more.  “Dad,” she said, “I know there’s really no crocodiles on that side of the bed.  But I’d rather sleep on this side of the bed anyway.  Catherine’s mean some of the time, but crocodiles are mean all of the time.”
