I Can't Dap...I Mean Nap


















I do not have the ability to day sleep.
To pull the blinds, grab a blanket and take a nap.
Even today when I am sick.

My head is a helium filled balloon,
my eyes and nose are watering.
You are welcome; for that lovely picture.

When I talk, all my m's and n's 
sound like b's and d's.
Go ahead and try it, you'll see what I bead.

I closed my Mac, gathered a blanket around me
and hunkered down on the couch.
lalalala...I am staring at the ceiling.

These words start filtering in through the fog.
I say them aloud and chuckle at myself.
Must be a writer I guess.

Close my eyes again, shift around so
Layla is comfy at my feet.
lalalala...Nope, not a day-sleeper.

Layla groans at being dislodged while I reach for mr.mac.
or is my laptop a girl.
Mary mac mac mac.......all dressed in....

Oh dear. The meds must be kicking in.

  3. Awww, you have my sympathy! I recognize one of my favorite things in your picture: Ricola's! Have you tried the Mixed Berry ones? They are my most-est favorite-ist ones!
    Feel better soon! I must add that I NEVER have a problem taking a dap. It's almost a necessity of my life!

  5. I sure hope you feel better soon. There's not much worse than not being able to sleep away part of the day when you're sick.

  6. Delightful! Not because you're sick, but because of the way you let us know. I love creativity.
