it's so interesting to get people's reaction to the idea of separate bedrooms for older married folks.
There are those of us who are light sleepers....
and there are those of us who think they are light sleepers.....
then there are those of us who are normal sleepers.....
then there are those of us like my brother and father, who conk out the minute their head hits the pillow and start sawing boards loud enough that the neighbors complain.
(that last statement may be a slight exaggeration)
I am a very light sleeper.
The heat kicking on in the winter is enough to wake me up.
Don't get me started on the #$% birds in the early spring mornings.
Thank goodness for white sound machines.
But white sound machines don't work if the source of the noise is 6" from your head.
In the long ago, ancient, olden times, prehistoric period of tribal groups living in rough camps....
I would have been one of the guys they had sleeping at the edge of the group of tents/caves/grass huts.
I would have been their early warning system.
there is probably a genetic reason that some of us are light sleepers.
I #$% SAVED OUR CAMP!!!!!
But my genetic makeup didn't get passed down because I couldn't stand to sleep with anyone of the noisy guys.
(actually, sleep isn't required for the passing down of genetic stuff.)
(That's probably what happened to my distant ancestor.)
(She was a good time girl.)
I wonder if there is a correlation between good time girls and light sleepers.....,,
You know, the woman in the movies who doesn't let her date spend the night.
Maybe it isn't about him encroaching on her space, but the simple reality of needing a good night's sleep because she has to work in the morning......
You need a lot of sleep to go out gathering or hunting or whatever.....
Especially if you want to look like Daryl Hannah.
Not that I do.
On that note,
