Shut up and let me sleep!
They all start off the same. Falling into a nice deep sleep before the end of an episode of Modern Family. By 1am, so deep in Lala Land I could be mistaken for a citizen or a Lalatian. Unfortunately, like all the other nights, I get deported before I could even be considered a landed immigrant.
Last Wednesday night I fell asleep just after 10pm. I was very tired so I had no doubt that I would be sleeping the whole night through. Just before 3am I found myself awake and alert. My mind sensing this, decided to start a conversation. Oh there you are! Sucks about your friend dying eh? So many people dying young these days. How is your health by the way? How is the blood pressure that you had tested? How about work? Let’s see what you have to do when you go in tomorrow. Or maybe I should say this morning.
My mind bombarded me with thoughts like those. I chewed on some and dismissed some. I tried to shut it off, telling myself I need to get some sleep but my mind wouldn’t relent! What time is it anyways? Oh almost 3am. Almost 4am. Almost 5am…oh oh, someone needs to be getting up soon. Aaarrrghhh!!
