Unless you’re completely unfamiliar with Hans Christian Anderson and his (usually) disturbing fairytales, you probably know the story of the princess and the pea. And in this case, the BARK bed.
In this tale, a prince begins his search for a real princess. When a girl shows up at the castle gates, she’s sent to bed upon a single pea and twenty mattresses, only to wake up with bruises and complaints about the uncomfortable pea-bump. She’s a keeper, right? She’s then deemed “sensitive” enough to be a princess and lives happily ever after. *rolls eyes into back of skull*
