I am terrified of the dark. For instance, when I go into my bedroom in there, there’s a lamp next to the bed, so what I have to do is turn on the office light, and then I go to the middle of the room with its pool of light, and then I go to the bed, where there’s a little light next to the bed, and I turn that on. Then I come back out, I turn off the office light, I turn off the big light and I’ve made it to the bed. That’s what I have to do if I’m on my own.
