Last night, I fell asleep while hemming a skirt. I woke up, sitting up with the needle in my hand and thimble still on my finger. So, I shuffled off to brush my teeth and take my allergy meds. I was walking along, turning off lights as I went, thinking how I would surely be back asleep in no time, still being so drowsy. This was good, because lately I’ve been getting into bed and then lying awake for awhile — not insomnia but not something that is usual for me. It was 15 minutes until midnight.
I was on my way to the bedroom when I ran into my 12 year old. He was up and very alert — wide-eyed. I asked him what he was doing. He answered me with the question, “Would you happen to know where the human anatomy textbook is?”
And, all of a sudden, I’m very awake.
Sent him to bed. Got into bed myself. All the while wondering, “What?” Sleep didn’t come soon.
I live with interesting people.
