Sleep and Dreams

I was just talking to Dominick. He told me I should go to bed because he was tired.

Well, OK, it wasn't quite like that. He said he was going to bed after he hung up the phone, and that I should do the same.

What can I say? I'm a naughty girl sometimes. So, if you're reading this, don't tell Dominick I was writing it while I should've been in bed! ;-)

You know how it was when you were a kid (or how it is if you still are one): Daddy or Mommy is tired. So you have to go to bed. I never quite understood the logic of that. Then again, I don't understand the logic of lots of things.

I will admit that I am tired. It seemed that everyone I saw today looked ready to fall asleep. I include my students. They looked like they were already in the dream zone even before I started to lecture. They're all eager for Spring Break. So am I.

Actually, they're all eager for Spring. This winter has been rather cold, but not unusually so. However, we haven't had a whole lot of sunlight for the past three months. As we all know, dreariness can lead to drowsiness.

Can't wait for Spring. Can't wait for Spring Break. Can't wait for my surgery. Well, that's two significant but recurrent things, and one monumental and unique (for me, anyway) event I can look forward to!
