“I’m so good at sleeping that I can do it with my eyes closed.” — Anonymous
Wabbit. No, this isn’t referring to a wascally wabbit. It is a Scottish term for being exhausted. Next time you’re tired, try saying, “I’m pretty wabbit at the moment” and see just how many people look at you strange.
“I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I’m awake, you know?”
Perfect word for today! It is true that I have always gone to bed early and I always wake up early. Some stories my dad has told about me was that I was the easiest kid to take care of at bedtime. Never fought going to bed. This is a permanent part of my personality.
Last night I went to bed about 8:30 pm. Yes, I usually go to bed this early. I lay there for a bit and read or listen to some music. However, I woke up at midnight and could not fall back asleep until about 3:30 am. I got up and drank some sleepy-time tea, had a little snack, read a little. Nothing worked. I could not fall back asleep. This is an anomaly for me.
I love a good night’s sleep because I wake up feeling so much better. Everything from the day before has been washed away and I always feel like I have a fresh start to either continue with whatever I started or completely start over and just leave the messy day behind. So today, this was the best word inspiration I could have had. Enjoy!!

“I love to sleep. Do you? Isn’t it great? It really is the best of both worlds. You get to be alive and unconscious.” — Rita Rudner
“Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.”
“Your eyes water when you yawn because you miss your bed and it makes you sad.” — Anonymous
“Happiness is waking up, looking at the clock and finding that you still have two hours left to sleep.” — Charles M. Schulz
“People say, ‘I’m going to sleep now,’ as if it were nothing. But it’s really a bizarre activity. ‘For the next several hours, while the sun is gone, I’m going to become unconscious, temporarily losing command over everything I know and understand. When the sun returns, I will resume my life.’
If you didn’t know what sleep was, and you had only seen it in a science fiction movie, you would think it was weird and tell all your friends about the movie you’d seen.
They had these people, you know? And they would walk around all day and be OK? And then, once a day, usually after dark, they would lie down on these special platforms and become unconscious. They would stop functioning almost completely, except deep in their minds they would have adventures and experiences that were completely impossible in real life. As they lay there, completely vulnerable to their enemies, their only movements were to occasionally shift from one position to another; or, if one of the ‘mind adventures’ got too real, they would sit up and scream and be glad they weren’t unconscious anymore. Then they would drink a lot of coffee.’
So, next time you see someone sleeping, make believe you’re in a science fiction movie. And whisper, ‘The creature is regenerating itself.”
