The Sandman he Cometh, and he Challenges# Two!
Age Group: Adult
Sandman:"Ahem! Did you stay up again, my dear?!"
Sandman:"Look, I gotta job to do, and you're fouling me up!"
Aren't you even going to get into the bed, and try to get "some" shut -eye???!"
Me:Well, I am a little bit tired....well (yawn) okay, ya saw me yawn!"
Sandman:"Yes, as a matter of fact, I did! You ARE tired..and a person like you, that is well, "not completely well" ......."
Me : (Interrupting him) :"What are you getting at!?"
Sandman:"I am only saying, that because you have some illnesses that are "the auto-immune kind", that YOU personally should be getting a LOT more sleep, than the other charges I deal with!"
Me: (looks at the floor, reluctantly) "Yeah, well, yeah...you're right, ..basically...but, I hate to sleep...well, I do like to sleep, because I love to dream...but, by the same token, ....I can't ALWAYS get to sleep!"
Sandman:"Look, I am not trying to be a pain, but, seriously, I have a job to do..and you are wrecking part of the fun for me..and also, I just want to see you happy, healthy and just feeling good, and seeing that your mind is working!"
Me:"Tell ya what!...."
Sandman:"Yeassss?" he says dryly, licking his lips, and fixing his white fedora hat..with the tips of his two top fingers and thumb.
Me:"I'll go to sleep, and then you can tell me, how I am doing...how's that?"
Sandman:"Well, I can't give you an absolute guarantee, unless, , , , , unless my dear....you try sleeping at the correct times..and you wake up when you are supposed to, check your blood sugar levels....and eat a good breakfast....I wanna see you do this for a week!!!!" (he laughs a loud...because he's betting that I can't do that!)
Me:"Look, Sand' I will try..."I start out saying..but, he stops me, with an inquisitive stare...
Sandman:"Na na noooooo! You GOTTA go to bed...and ya GOTTA sleep...there ain't no other deal here!"
Me:"Okay, and if I sleep, will you stop yammering away at me?!"
Sandman:"Well, I will be somewhat satisfied, that you tried....I'd be happier if you would just get off your high horse, and started listening to those around you, that care about you...and ALOT, I might add! YOu don't seem to care..and that has me quite worried...but, I will be glad to see you sleep....so I'll come back..and see ya later...
tah tah, my little sleeper!" and with that, he tipped the
fedora sideways with a click of his tongue and a wink in his eye!
Me: (to myself) "I am kind of tired....and I have errands to run, no use staying up till 6 am! Think I'll see if this "sleep" thing really works or not!!! LOL!"
Well, and we will see!
until next time....keep smiling..and if you see Mr. Rico Suave Sandman...say hi and tell em that lady k says hi and goodnight!
