It’s World Sleep Day so I’ll just keep away
If I hadn’t logged into my Twitter account a few minutes ago, I never would have known it’s World Sleep Day today. Wow. I’ve gotta get with the times. Like a fool, I got up way before dawn without realizing the rest of the world is asleep. What’s a guy like me to do?
I guess there’s nothing I can do about it. You won’t be reading this today anyway. Unless today is actually the day after World Sleep Day…or week after…or whatever. Yeesh. I don’t know how to deal with this. It’s never come up for me before. Does this happen every year? Are you asleep right now and you don’t care?
OK, why fight it? If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Right? Well, I gotta get in the sleep mood first because I just had my second cup of coffee, and I don’t feel like a true World Sleep Day player yet. So, let’s see…maybe some soothing lyrics…
Yes, my love…I do adore you.
Hear my heart…it’s beating for you.
Private memories we will keep,
But for now…fall fast asleep.
Leave the world and cares behind you.
I’ll make sure they cannot find you.
You’ll be safe in slumber deep…
So for now…fall fast asleep.
Nope, still not asleep.
OK, how about these?
As the fingernail moon
Scratches on the noggin of the sky…
And the stardust turns to sleepdust
In the corner of your eye…
On the top of the hill
You can hear the coyotes cry…
As the world falls asleep
To a cowpoke lullaby.
Oh forget it. Nothin’s workin’. So, I’m gonna go ahead and stay awake for World Sleep Day. That’s OK, I’m not supposed to conform to the world anyway. And I’ll be a day ahead of my competition from now on. Bam!
