Hey, you know what’s even better than taking a nap on the couch? Well, I’ll tell you.
That feeling you get just before you fall asleep on the couch.
Yes, that’s when you enter that blissful, semi-conscious Pre-Nap World where your thoughts float and zoom around your brain and your muscles relax and detensify. The sun feels warm on your face, the radio on in the background fades to a comforting white noise, and you know…you just know…that you’re about to catch some blissful z’s.
It’s a pretty darn good feeling, isn’t it?
There are actually really only two things that can disturb you when you’re in the Pre-Nap World:
1. Feeling like you have to go to the bathroom. Sorry, but unless you trust your bladder to balloon without bursting, you might just have to get up for this one. Nobody can really help you go to the bathroom while you’re all snuggled up on the couch, unless of course they really, REALLY love you. Or really, REALLY owe you. You know what they say about payback…
2. Feeling cold. You get those ol’ laying-on-the-couch shivers. You know your sheets and blankets are back on your bed, and you could technically just get up to go get them, but that is a lot of effort on your part. Plus, if you get up now, you’ll risk leaving your peaceful, zen-link Pre-Nap World. That’s a world you don’t want to leave lightly.
This is why it is so great whenever someone notices your dilemma and just quietly grabs a blanket from the closet and tosses it on your semi-conscious self. If they’re really nice, they might even flap the blanket above you, letting it open and softly land on your almost sleeping self.
When that happens, you immediately feel the warmth radiating around you, a tiny smile curls itself on the corners of your lips, and you fall deeper and deeper into a nice, relaxing rest.
