EVER SINCE I WAS A CHILD, I'VE ALWAYS
HAD A FEAR OF SOMEONE 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 met 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 a new pickup!'

'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!!!

LOL! I still won't dangle my feet or arms over the side. Of course, there is something hiding under there now. The kitty will get me.

That was very practical advice. Unless they're very thin monsters. Some of those critters in Monsters, Inc might have squeezed under even a bed on the floor!
