Yes! Like a country bumpkin arriving for the first time in the city, the moment I landed in Atlanta my first stop was Starbucks! I even took a photo of the first Starbucks place I went to. I come from Africa, where lions roam the streets and we have to hunt for our food…and if you believe that then I don’t know…honestly! But let’s go with the idea.
Why oh why did you fall asleep on the couch! Again! Like all the nights this week. And last week. And the week before.
You know it totally totally disrupts your sleep patterns. You then drag yourself off to bed at a time when most people’s sleep clocks are thinking of coming awake. When you get up, it is already late and you rush to get to work on time, terrorising all the other drivers in the process. Then half-way through the day you flake out, needing an afternoon nap!
But I know, it is so nice to succumb on the soft cushions of the couch. Much better than going off to bed and lying awake, trying to fall asleep! Rather just maximise on the opportunity already there. I think you should just move the bed into the lounge, then there is no issue, now is there? And you could then hire out the bedroom and make some money in the process.
So here’s a note to self: stop faffing, get off to bed like normal people! All the neighbours’ are asleep! The dogs have stopped howling at the moon. Get off to bed now!
Things kids do! Most of the time they are hilarious. Parents probably don’t think so because they are…well…the parents :-). I am not a parent, so this post is my baffled, sometimes alarmed, and mostly amused view of things kids do.
Once upon a time there lived an emperor, Shah Jahan, who so loved his wife, Mumtaz Mahal, that when she died he built a huge monument in her memory, as her final resting place. Evidence of their love endures today – the Taj Mahal.
