Makes Sense to Me!

Ever since I was a child, I've always had a fear
of someone being under my
bed at night so I went to a shrink and told him:
"I've got problems. Every
time I go to bed I think there's somebody under
it. I'm scared. I think
I'm going crazy."

"Just put yourself in my hands for one
year," said the shrink. "Come talk
to me three times a week and we should be able to get
rid of those fears."

"How much do you charge?"

"Eighty dollars per visit," replied the doctor.

"I'll sleep on it," I said.

Six months later the doctor saw me on the street.
"Why didn't you come to
see me about those fears you were having?" he asked.

"Well, eighty bucks a visit three times a week
for a year is an awful lot of money! A bartender
cured me for $10. I was so happy to
have saved all that money
that I went and bought me a new car!"

"Is that so!" with a bit of an attitude he
said. "And how, may I ask, did a
bartender cure you?"

"He told me to cut the legs off the bed!
Ain't nobody under there now!"

Makes sense to me too. Plus it makes falling into bed a whole lot easier, but climbing out of bed harder.

My mom wouldn't have liked it much if I would have cut the legs off my bed, because she sure didn't like it when I discarded the closet doors to hang up bead curtains!

LOL I should have done that when I was a kid, along with removing my closet door and keeping a light on all night!

Donna said...

LOL, I love it! I had heard this a long time ago, but forgot the punch line!

When I was young, I was terrified there was someone under the bed. Didn't we all?

Too funny. I'd say more, but I've got to get the saw out of the garage and go meet a friend for a drink.

If I cut the legs off the bed, I'd still fall out of it. hahahaha

I sure wish my mom would have cut the legs off my bed when I was a kid! I could have slept better and had a whole lot less nightmares. Whats the cure for monsters in the closet? LOL
