I just thought I'd update for a second. I have been a little sicky lately. But, am feeling much better today! Well, I oughta! After my sleep escapade yesterday! --- Is escapade a word? Hang on...let me look...yep. here it is.
escapade: a reckless adventure or wild prank. an escape from confinement or restraint.
so... a sleep escapade would be a reckless adventure of sleep or an escape from reality (confinement) into sleep.
okay..yeah..that was me. I took my beloved Nyquil at 7pm on Tuesday night. I fell into an escapade of sleep at 8:15, which didn't end until 7am Wednesday. 11 hours of sleep STRAIGHT! Ah...but the escapade didn't end there. I got up... got the kids off to school... and went back to bed at 8:45am. Until 10am. Only an hour and 15 minutes but I thought it was enough. So, I got up... and decided to try to read. Only to find that I was sluggish still...you know after only 13 hours of sleep in the past 14 and a half hours, a person sometimes just feels sluggish and tired. I kept falling asleep reading... so I did what any sleep deprived person would do.... I went back to bed. at 11am. I slept until 2pm. Then, I drug myself out of bed. Yes, I could have slept LONGER.
My first fear of course is that after 16 hours of sleeping I would have a hard time falling asleep Wednesday night. But, alas that was not a problem. I slept from 10pm to 7am -- and got 9 more hours!
So, all said... my sleep escapade lasted 36 hours. Of that 36 hours, only 10 of them were waking hours!
