One citizen of Meddybemps who didn't share this hairdo and sleep problem was Doctor Pickering, the dentist. He had no hair and so he slept very well, thank you. He also did his job very well and took such good care of everyone's teeth that no one got any cavities and no one's grown-up teeth ever fell out.
But he was sad, too. Since everyone was grumpy, no one smiled and Doctor Pickering couldn't see all the pretty teeth he cared for.
