SOLSC Day 11
Let’s face it. It’s not just plopping down somewhere, closing your eyes, and nodding off. Taking a good nap is a science. The most important step in nap taking is finding the perfect place to take a nap. This can be tricky.
There are so many conditions that must be met for a spot to be the one. For instance, the spot must be comfortable. Why would you choose to take a nap in an uncomfortable spot?
It mustn’t be too light. How can you fall asleep if it is too light?
It must be a place where you will not be disturbed. How can you get in a quality nap if someone is disturbing you every five minutes or so?
A pillow, though not necessary, is nice.
Well, I am on the lookout for the perfect napping spot. This spot won’t work. It is comfortable. The light won’t shine in my eyes. There is a drawback, though. This is a bed. Beds are for night sleeping not nap taking. Besides, Molly wants to share the spot. Not always conducive to good napping.
Let’s move on to another spot. How about a chair? Again, it is soft and comfortable. Chairs are good places to nap. It is protected on three sides by the arms and back. But again there is a problem. This time Dustin also wants the space. He doesn’t always like to share.
As another option why don’t I try the tower. It is not exactly soft. Light from the dining room window does hit me in the face. On the plus side, though, no one else can share the spot with me. I guess I could make do.
As a last resort there is always the floor. Good carpeting and a soft pad make it inviting. But there can be a lot of foot traffic. This definitely disturbs a good nap.
Wait. There is one more space left to try. Someone just sat down on a chair. That means there is a lap. Molly is there already, but I can make that work. She can be used as a pillow.
This pillow will even clean my face for me.
Oh yes. I can feel my eyes closing.
Ah, I have found it. This is the perfect place for a naaa…zzzzzzzz!
