To save money, they decided to sleep two to a room, but nobody wanted to share a room with Daryl because he snored so badly.
They decided that it wouldn’t be fair to make one of them stay with him the whole time, so they voted to take turns.
The first deputy slept with Daryl and comes to breakfast the next morning with his hair a mess and his eyes all bloodshot.
They said, “Man, what happened to you?”
He said, “I didn’t get a wink of sleep. Daryl snored so loudly, I just sat up and watched him all night.”
The next night it was a different deputy’s turn.
In the morning, the same thing happened. The deputy’s hair was all standing up, his eyes were all bloodshot, and he looked like a wreck.
They said, “Man, what happened to you? You look awful!”
He said, “Man, that Daryl shakes the roof. I watched him all night, I couldn’t get to sleep at all.”
The third night was Frank’s turn.
Frank was a big burly ex-football player; a man’s man.
The next morning he came to breakfast bright eyed and bushy tailed. “Good morning,” he said.
The other deputies couldn’t believe it! They said, “Man, what happened?”
He said, “Well, we got ready for bed. I went and tucked Daryl into bed and kissed him good night. He sat up and watched ME all night long.”
