Over or Under

Zak's grandfather, Stan, was very famous. Why? Because he had a very, very, very long white beard.

One day Zak asked his grandfather, "When you sleep, do you put your beard over or under the covers?"

"I'm not sure," said his grandfather. "I fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. I never pay attention to my beard. I'll look tonight."

Stan got into bed that night and pulled up the blanket. Then he remembered his grandson's question. Aha! His beard was definitely under the covers. But wait. Did that feel right?

He lifted his beard from under the blanket and placed it above it. This also didn't feel quite right. So he tucked the beard under the blanket again. But he soon felt it would be better if it were out. In and out went the beard; first under the blanket, then over it, under, over, all night long.

Stan didn't sleep all night. In the morning, he was so tired and fed up that he cut his long beard right off! Not completely off, just to the chin.

Stan's friends were so happy. They had been trying to get Stan to cut that beard for years. Zak never did find out the answer to his question.
