We have all had nights when we could not get to sleep. We try counting sheep, drinking warm milk, or having a hot toddy. All Gecko wants is to go to sleep. If only the chief would make everyone pipe down! In this story we learn, as does Gecko, that there are some things you just have to put up with.
