Nap Buddies

Confession time. I like naps. A lot.

A nap takes away the sleepiness, the fatigue. It gives the body a chance to rest and recuperate.

I can nap pretty much anywhere, in any position. Some of my best naps have been while sitting in a chair at the gate at the airport, waiting for a flight.

I can sleep during takeoff or landing but I usually wake up right around the announcements in order to either recline or upright-position my seat. When I'm on a flight where food will be served I force myself to read something so I don't sleep through the food cart.

Most of my naps are taken alone, but I have napped with some close friends - platonic naps, no touching. Not like this nap between Ross and Joey of Friends, which is platonic but a little weird:

These days my nap partner might be a cat, or Miguel. Miguel likes to nap as much as I do, although I'm not sure he plans it the way I do - with him it just happens.

Like right now - he was reading his school book. Glasses on, pen in hand, reclined on the couch. I was working on the computer and heard a gentle snore. Yup, Miguel is sound asleep.

And I think his nap is contagious, because I'm feeling really sleepy right now. Miguel is asleep, Loco is asleep, Luna and Cappuchina are asleep. It's time for me to sleep too. Yawn...

I love napping too! I've been doing water aerobics in the morning, so I pass out mid-afternoon. Ahhhhhhhh!

I tend to nap late afternoon--just falling asleep in my chair! Alan can nap anytime or place, too!
