I can Sleep at Night Minute
This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
In the old, old days the Boy Scouts had a contest to find the best scout. They wanted to find which scout had best exemplified the scout oath, law, motto, and all that is scouting. The prize was a new tent, sleeping bag, and flashlight plus a weekend campout with the Dan Beard - a founder of the BSA.
One scout was easily selected - it was a unanimous decision based on all he had done and his leadership. Dan Beard flew into town and met the scout, gave him his prizes, and headed out on their campout.
On the hike to the campsite, Mr. Beard asked the scout, "So, why do you think you earned this reward?"
The scout thought awhile and replied, "Well, I guess it's because I can sleep at night."
This caught Beard by surprise and he didn't know what to think, so he just pondered it on the hike.
After setting up camp, eating dinner, and a short campfire, Mr. Beard decided to go to bed, and some time later so did the scout. Around midnight, BOOM it hit, a big thunderstorm!
Dan got out of bed and went to bank the fire but it had already been banked. He then went to secure the firewood but that had already been put under a tarp. He then went to put up the cooking supplies and food but that, too, had already been taken care of.
As it started to rain, he looked in on that scout and saw that he was fast asleep!
Mr. Beard retired to his tent and thought about what that young scout had told him - "I can sleep at night"
