Ysabel, your dad gets a gold star. There’s no way you turned out weird all on your own. You had to get it from somewhere, and I think I know just the place. He also handled it perfectly. He made it relatable and soothed your fears. Let’s give him two gold stars.
I suffered from sleep paralysis when I was a kid and thought it was astral projection. It never occurred to me to worry about the sun, though. Anyway, I’m glad your dad was there for you. I hope you gave him a huge hug when you realized what he had done.
