Must get more sleep!

Not to push this blog into TMI territory, but during, shall we say, certain hormonally charged times of the month, I have problems sleeping. It's not that I'm not tired, but my mind races and I find a million other things to do than go to bed. The consequence of this is, of course, that I'm very tired during the day. Make it a busy day at work and the effect can be severe...

I was in the last massage of the day, in the last ten minutes of that massage, to be exact. It was a prenatal massage, and I was giving the lady a lovely scalp and neck massage to grant her that perfectly relaxed state. She started snoring delicately...
Apparently, I'm so used to massage that I can do it on auto-pilot now. I found myself drifting off along with my client, fingers continuing to move in their hypnotic, circular pattern...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Luckily, the fact that I was starting to drool woke me up! Even more luckily, my head hadn't nodded down far enough to bump into hers.

That's the first time I've ever been able to say, "Saved by the drool!"

I was just glad I fell asleep in bed yesterday and not standing up at the stove cooking dinner. LOL!!

Well, that's one more time than I have to my credit. Wait. There WAS that time at the bar... oh, never mind. ;-)

I dig a chick that drools.

Blondie, you could cook a gourmet meal in your sleep!

Buck, you tease, you!

Well, I suppose drooling is better than slobbering, Trashman.

I rarely "almost" fall asleep, but when I do, it's most likely in American History or Biology... In fact I would've fallen asleep in American History today if it were not for my will not to have to stand up in the back of the classroom... Heh heh...

That's right, Chaos! Bring some toothpicks to school to prop up your eyelids! Just kidding...;)
