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

In keeping with Mary Kennedy’s Dream Club series this blog is on how we get to those dreams… Sleep!

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. I 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 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 $60 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, overnight in an airport…there’s a treat not to be missed...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 using a pillow and I don’t mean me to sleep on but the other guy to sleep under...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 takes your pillow with you?

Tell us about you and sleep and I’ll give two of these adorable sleep masks from the answers. Just the thing when you want to sleep on that airplane flight. (Please check back to see if you won.)
