But shear-iously


I have long wondered why it is that we’re supposed to count sheep when we can’t sleep. Why sheep as opposed to another type of animal? Why an animal at all?

  1. It is so you know that you’re not counting the same one twice. No fence, they all mingle with one another and you don’t really know. The frustration would keep you up all night.

  2. Oh, I meant you don’t know why it’s sheep? I hadn’t even considered the fence question yet, but I think your explanation is a good one.
