Here’s the scenario.
It’s late. I’m reading an amazing story, one of those hard-to-put-down books. I am so tired I can hardly keep my eyes open. I rest my eyes a moment, my book slips and my head jerks up. Really, I was just resting my eyes! I try to read more but then … yawn. Heaviness. I shake my head, find where I left off reading, try to continue. … Oh darn. What did I just read? Blink blink. *sigh* ohhh, I give up. 😦 I like this story and I don’t want to miss anything, so, *yawn* I give up. Time for sleep.
I crawl into bed, snuggle down and …
BOING!! my brain jolts into overdrive! My eyes fly open, my mind will not shut down, yet I know I’m too weary to read. What to do?
Ever been there?
All that to show you this great quote:
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂
Happens to me often!! I guess all readers suffer from this.
We must be a comical-looking lot. 🙂
I do this all the time. It can be very frustrating! I started reading with a little book light, so that I can just fall asleep with it on and the whole room isn’t lit up. I always wake later in the night anyway and can turn it off.
You have a good plan, Heather. I forgot about my book light; might have to start using it again. Thanks for the reminder. 🙂
