Congratulations, Molly, and happy shopping! I will email you the details.
On the radio this morning, listeners were calling in to tell about the strangest places they've ever fallen asleep. Personally, I haven't done this in any weird spots, but I have a couple of stories about the men in my life ...
When Hubby and I were dating in 1984, he took me to an amazing planetarium for an evening showing of the Beatles Laser Light Show. We are talking classic Beatles songs -- great music, loud music, choreographed to shooting laser lights all across the ceiling. The seats were big comfy captain's chairs that laid back so you could just watch the "sky." It was a fantastic show and the first time I realized that my boyfriend/not yet Hubby would fall asleep during performances. And snore, dear Lord, he snored. During this loud, loud music and crazy, wild, shooting light show. I remember thinking, How cute, he must be exhausted from work. Now I know ... he falls asleep during just about anything and everything, no matter what time of day it is. If we go to a morning movie after he's just woken up refreshed from a good night's sleep, doesn't matter -- he's sound asleep in no time. Actually, he always sees the first and last 10 minutes of any movie, sleeping through the middle. I'm used to it, but the Granddaughter will elbow him hard when she's sitting next to him at the movies and he snores. Makes me laugh. Makes him laugh, too, but we all know he simply can't help it. Turn the lights down and he's a goner.
The other story was from my childhood when my Dad, early one morning during Christmas time, stood in the front room picture window next to the decorated tree drinking a cup of coffee. He fell asleep standing up and knocked our Christmas tree over. I'm not sure what happened next, but I'll bet you a big pile of frankincense and myrrh that Mom wanted to ship him off to the North Pole. I would have!
Maybe it's a guy thing. A man calling in on the radio show this morning said he actually fell asleep standing over a urinal at work while going to the bathroom. The radio hostess asked him if he made a mess, but he said he had his arm braced on the wall until a co-worker came in and woke him up.
