Sometimes My Mind Plays Tricks On Me.

I didn't go to work yesterday. Because I didn't go to work yesterday, I decided to take a nap. My nap ended up lasting for two and a half hours so, when it came time to go to bed last night, I wasn't sleepy. Therefore, I had a hard time going to sleep and, when it came time to get up this morning and go to work, my body decided to punish me for throwing off my internal clock.

When my alarm went off this morning, my body told me "no", so I reached over, turned it off, and fell back asleep. Soon thereafter, I woke up, took my shower, got dressed, got into my car and drove to the interstate. However, I seemed to have not been paying attention, because I ended up taking a wrong exit off of the interstate and onto a very high swinging bridge that crossed between to extraordinarily high mountain peaks. Luckily, I was able to put my car into reverse and back myself out onto the interstate again. I was soon back on course and, before I knew it, I was right where I belonged: at my High School.

It wasn't really my High School; it was actually sort of a melding of my High School and College and, of course, I was missing a few articles of clothing. So, wearing nothing but a dress shirt and a pair of boxer shorts, I made my way through the halls of this giant school towards my locker where, assuredly, I would find the rest of my clothes. I made it just in time to duck into a bathroom, get dressed, and get to class when, I realized that...


My mind was playing tricks on me! It tricked me into thinking that I had gotten up, gotten ready, and headed out the door! It did this so that it could get more rest! The lazy jerk! How selfish can one be? It made me late for work and, of course, I couldn't give any excuses. I mean, after all, I didn't particularly feel like being committed today.....yikes.....

I guess that I need to take better care of myself from now on. After all, no one wants their own body taking revenge on them. I mean, that's just creepy!

Does this mean that you shouldn't take naps then?
