Those of you who are addicted to a daily dose of Bookpuddle Splash du Jours will notice that today you had to… go without, as it were!
<-- And the reason has everything to do with the photo here.
Lately I have had some severe sleeping issues, as in, I can't do it.
So I've resorted to these -- pills. [I spoke of this recently].
Anyhoo -- last night I took one of these blue beauties and then nodded off into Never-Never Land. And this morning, I was still slumbering like a tranquilized rhinoceros when [of all things] my bedroom phone rang, two feet away from my paralyzed head.
It was a worried co-worker wondering WHY I WASN'T AT WORK!
I looked at my alarm clock and launched out of bed like Wile E. Coyote falling from a cliff -- neck all stretched out and everything, but in REVERSE mode.
Either my alarm clock is made by the ACME© company, OR -- these pills are just too powerful, man!
At any rate, I did make it in to work -- with quite the hair-do, I must say, and minus a Splash du Jour for my blog!
I spent the day reconsidering the power of Sleep-Eze.
And also, I thought of the movie The Matrix.
Remember when Morpheus [Laurence Fishburne] gives Neo [Keanu Reeves] the option of taking either the blue pill or the red pill?
Well -- Morpheus LIED to Neo, because last night I chose the BLUE pill, and I did NOT "wake up in my bed" as promised. I stayed in "wonderland!"
