At the dinner table last night, the subject came up of heavy sleeping/light sleeping.
Steve’s a heavy sleeper and I’m a light sleeper. I like to read before falling asleep…and I have no pity for Steve complaining about the light remaining on because he can fall asleep within one minute. (Sometimes even less than a minute! That is not an exaggeration. It is a documented fact.)
So my two sons were listening to this conversation. The 17-year-old said, “Man, Dad. You’re so lucky. I wish I could fall asleep that easily. I have trouble falling asleep in different places.”
My older son asked him, “Huh? What do you mean?”
My 17-year-old responded (yes, he actually said this!): “Well, like, in English class. I tried to sleep and just couldn’t.”
