feet on coffee tableHello blog friends. Because I know how much each and every one of you enjoys wasting spending a few minutes each Monday here at the Edge of Eternity, today I bring to you another installment of weird facts.

Naps. Babies take lots of them. Old folks take them. Lots of people take them and often refer to them as power naps.

I’ve never been one to nap unless I’m sick. Not that I haven’t wanted or tried to nap, it just doesn’t work for me. Many times, I’ve wanted to close my eyes and catch a few minutes of sleep. But, you see, it usually takes me about half an hour to simply fall asleep. If I only have 15 minutes in which to rest my eyes, I won’t fall asleep, I’ll just look like this.

I’ve never figured out how people can fall asleep so quickly. Or sleep with commotion going on around them. I have to have quiet for about half an hour before my body realizes that it should sleep. Even if I were lucky enough to fall asleep within that 30 minutes, I wouldn’t look like this while I peacefully nap.

Nope, I’d look more like this:

Yup, I’d be sprawled all over the bed, drooling or snoring, or both. It would not be pretty. And if I were to sleep longer than 20 minutes, instead of waking up refreshed, I’d pretty much be a zombie; sluggish and irritable. On the contrary, if I were to sleep longer than 20 minutes during the daylight hours, then you can pretty much guarantee that I’d be awake all night.

Naps have always been curses for me and that pisses me off because I so often wish I could take a cute, little nap and wake feeling refreshed and perky until well past 8:00 p.m., when I really start longing for my pajamas and bed and dark and quiet.

How about you dear readers – are you nappers? Can you grab a few minutes of shut-eye in the middle of the day and still get a good night’s sleep? I’d love to know your secrets.

Word of the Day: Yaupon

Fun fact about me: I try to get at least 7 hours of sleep every single night.
