let her sleep, for when she wakes she will shake the world. napoleon bonaparte


this may or may not be an actual photo of me in inaction

imagine my disappointment

when receiving the response below

after volunteering for a study

that i was born to

  training for this my whole life

i am a natural

this is my skill set

 known to fall asleep literally anywhere at any time

regardless of what is going on around me

especially within minutes of being seated

as a passenger in any moving vehicle

who gets a rejection letter from the circadian research lab?!

  1. So, as you may know, I’m a sleep tech. Can’t help but ask – have you ever been evaluated for Sleep Apnea? Narcolepsy? There is a “test” you can take online – the Epworth Sleepiness Scale. Take it and let me know what your score is – you may need a sleep study.

    Ok, taking my professional hat off now….

  2. Hahahaha!! This is hilarious. I thought the email must be an elaborate joke at first, especially as the dog photo was already worthy of a post.

    I can’t even imagine how painless journeys must be for you!

  3. First, I love that adorable pic. Second, yes, I do think you need to follow up with a sleep study. My husband (and nearly all of his siblings) have sleep apnea. A sleep apnea machine has helped him a lot with the falling asleep during the day issue. But he still has the ability to easily nap. Since he is typically awake by 5:30 am and is working 10-hour days, I understand his exhaustion.
