When I was in college I was taking an overly-full course load, working a full-time job and had a pretty active (for me) social life. But now that I think about it, part of my social life included napping. I had one or two friends who would come over and we'd sleep together.


We'd talk about doing something fun, but before fun could actually occur, we'd just lay down wherever we were (on my bed, the couch, the lawn in the back yard) and fall asleep. Then one person would wake up and poke the sleeper and we'd continue right where we'd left off.

I'm sort of sad that adults don't get to have napfriends, especially since it seems like the mantra of just about everyone I know nowadays is "I'm TIRED."

It makes me want to have a slumber party where everyone shows up with a pillow and a toothbrush, we all take a melatonin and then watch documentaries until we pass out. At 7:30 in the evening. And we sleep until really late the next morning and wake up feeling better and more vigorous than we have in months.

The first part could probably happen. The second part? Nah.
