Every once in awhile though, I will sleep the sleep of the dead. Usually this involves a long shift at work, over-the-counter medications, and all the stars aligning in a paisley pattern.
|Sometimes, you just have to pass out|
I find, when I am sleeping this hard, it is the exact moment someone will call me and need me to think immediately upon answering the phone. It almost always goes like this:
Me: holmewhho?This weekend I experienced a bit of that. With the new title at work, I am on call a lot. On my 4 days of work, if there is a crisis the other workers need help with, I'm the first call. I don't mind it, I like to help. The only problem is, I don't always remember what I've said once I wake up the next morning.
Them: There is 4 seconds on the count down and I need to know which wire!!! Green or red? DO I CUT GREEN OR RED????
Them: ** KABOOM **
A co-worker was laughing at me about her call to me early one morning. She knew I would be waken out of a dead sleep so tried to ease me into talking by asking how I was and all that. I guess I was a little incoherent because all I could say was "whatveyougot?" mumbled as though my face was still in a pillow.
|I can sleep anywhere. Just not well.|
Instead? I said "Shannon lives in a house."
Then I hung up.
