Zzzzzzzz

I remember when I couldn't take a nap if I tried. It just wouldn't work. No matter how sleepy or exhausted I was, if it was the middle of the day, it wasn't going to happen. I've never been a high-energy type, so it certainly wasn't that. I don't remember ever being able to take a nap as a kid, teenager, or beyond.

Well, that was then. Now, I can sit down on the couch and be asleep in no time at all. Notice that I said "sit." I can konk out without even having to lie down. Don't get me wrong; I'm not narcoleptic, although I've had my moments. It helps if I'm trying to read or watch TV. Something about trying to stay awake makes me fall asleep faster. It figures.

In the past, I didn't understand how some people could fall asleep at the drop of a hat. I think I get it now.

Haha, I wrote about catching Zzzzzs today too. It's still hard for me though, wish I could nap.
