Never Enough

I love sleep. My life has a tendency to fall apart when I'm awake"
-Ernest Hemingway



I’m one of those people who can sleep anywhere, any time any place. I think I learned it in college with so much do and so little time. Slept in class, curled up on a library chair, on the floor, campus bench, empty classroom, the cafeteria.

This carried over to adulthood. I’ve pulled my car over to sleep and zonked out draped over the steering wheel, I always fall asleep on the couch...my TV is just an expensive nightlight.

I can sleep with my head on the keyboard resulting in little squares indented in my face. I can sleep in church, the movies, the symphony and at $80 a ticked that is expensive sleeping.

Some of the worse places I’ve slept are in a tent in the rain with the water leaking through the sides and running in the bottom, a plane to London with two screaming babies behind me, the dorm freshman year where no one slept ever, on the sidewalk waiting for New Kids on the Block tickets.

Some of the best places where I’ve slept is in a hotel room after that flight to London, in my own bed after a week of camping in the woods, under the stars in the Grand Canyon, on a sailboat in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay.

What about snoring? I won’t ask if you do but can you fall asleep if the other person snores. Personally I’ve contemplated suffocation but that’s just between us.

What about you? Do you need a special blanket to fall asleep? Do you have a special pillow? Are you one of those people who take your pillow with you?


Tell us about you and sleep and I’ll give away three of these adorable sleep masks from the answers. Just the thing when you want to sleep on that airplane flight.

Happy Sleeping
Hugs, Duffy
