Many years ago, I found at a fabric store a bolt of cotton flannel that had cute little bunnies all over it. But when you turned out the lights, gasp! The hidden troop of glow-in-the-dark Rambo Bunnies with machine guns and other weapons was revealed. I bought a few yards and made it into a nightgown for a friend. I like to think Patty’s nightgown has a similar glow-in-the-dark secret.
Also, in case you are wondering what on Earth is going on in that coffee carafe, you may wish to re-examine this scene from Chapter Two.
