What Kept Me Up Last Night
If I was being judged on my ability to fall asleep last
night, I am afraid I would have been given a .005
on a scale from 0 to 100.
Yes, I watched a bit of ladies figure skating
last night in which our little girl scored the highest
ever of her career which is why I thought this scoring system worked well.
I also managed to watch all of the episodes of The Office
that air on Tuesday nights on TBS.
I learned how Jim and Pam finally got engaged.
Having Tivo in your bedroom is probably not a good idea.
Anyway, after turning off the TV, snuggling my
pillows, fan blowing in my face, I try to drift off to sleep.
And then...POW! This enters my brain...
How many beers can you name in 60 seconds?
I am not kidding you. Would I write about this if if wasn't real?
So, I play along with my fragmented brain activity at 1:00 am.
Bud Light (easy, right?)
Pabst Blue Ribbon (remember, I grew up in Chicago)
Amber Boc k(now I am getting into the fancy beers)
Amstel Light (I love that just about every beer has a light version)
and then I come to a screeching halt...
What is the name of the beer I have in the fridge that I like?
No, not right at all.
I swear at least 45 minutes passed on the clock before Newcastle Brown Ale came to mind.
Right! How could I forget that?
Ok, I am ready to settle in and cross over in some really great rem sleep now.
The record light comes on and I am wondering what in the heck am I recording?
On goes the tv again....
to find that I am recording
I hope it will be worth it.
Needless to say, I finally fell fast asleep
and awoke to the sounds of the landscapers trimming the hedges around the complex.
Blast...no rest for the wicked.
