Now, you might think that 8:30 pm isnít a good time to take a nap. But Iím telling you that when your sleep habits are as bad as mine, you take what you can get. Thatís especially true if you had as bad a night the night before as I had last night. And lately, I havenít been able to sleep as late as Iíd like in the mornings, even on weekends.
Besides, it wasnít even dark yet! Thatís one of the things I like about this time of year. In the winter, it gets dark at the best time of day, just when Iím starting to wake up, in the middle of the afternoon, just a few short hours after I got out of bed. In the summer, which it almost is at last, there are so many more hours of daylight to enjoy, at a time when I can actually enjoy them.
Because anything that happens before noon on a Saturday might as well be happening to somebody else. Iím probably not going to be there, or if I am there, Iím probably not going to be able to take full advantage. You have to be awake to enjoy being awake, whereas I can enjoy being asleep at just about any time such a magical phenomenon should happen to occur.
