I used to think that once my sons moved past the baby stage and started sleeping through the night, I would be more energetic during the day. But I was wrong--now my body now is programmed to waken off and on during the night and be tired by mid-day.
Apparently my body craves sleep so much, I’m able to fall asleep in public. That’s what happened to me the other day at the chiropractor’s office. After doing some physical therapy, I laid down on the roller table. Under the vinyl top of this contraption is a roller that runs up and down your back, mildly stretching it. It’s not the most comfortable bed, but I guess being prone is all I need to fall asleep because after three minutes, I was out. The roller is supposed to stop after 10 minutes, but this time it didn’t and I slept for 30 minutes.
Finally, a staff member woke me up to see the chiropractor. It took me a few groggy moments to realize what happened. “You looked so comfortable, I wanted to give you a blanket and pillow,” joked the chiropractor.
Good one! I think I'll bring my own for next week's appointment.
