Coach Boudreaux

Bill Pardue presents us this tale of Cajun mischief. The author is not known.


The coaches in St. Landry Parish went to a coach’s retreat and to save money they had to room together. No one wanted to room with coach Boudreaux because he snores so bad. They decide it’s not fair to make one of dem stay wit him the whole time so they vote to take turns.

Coach Fontenot sleeps wit him and he come to breakfast next morning hair a mess, eyes all blood shot. They say, “Man, what happen to you?”

He say, “Man, that Boudreaux snore so loud, I watch him all night.”

Next night coach Guidry’s turn. In the morning, same thing – hair all standing up, eyes all blood shot. They say, “Man, what happened to you? You look awful!”

He say, “Man, no, that Boudreaux shake the roof. I watched him all night.”

Third night, coach Doucet turn. Next morning he come to breakfast bright eyed and bushy tailed. “Good morning you all.”

They can’t believe! They say, “Man, what happened?”

He say, “Well, we get ready for bed. I go and tuck Boudreaux into bed and kiss him good night. He watch me all night long.”
