My Odd Sock sleepytime
My Odd Sock sleepytime


Clap your hands together.  Nudge me.  Splash water in my face.

I’m dozing again.  And I can’t stop.

Just last week I took two siesta’s—in one day!

Bloodhounds have more energy!




Some folks say they prop their eyelids open with toothpicks.  Heck, my eyelids feel so heavy, I need tent poles!


That’s why I can’t sit still.  If I sit any more than twenty minutes, a doozy sleep-aura descends on me like a “slumber-fog.”

The Sandman begins shoveling “sleep-dust” into my eyes similar to one spreading salt on an icy sidewalk.


That's a big head on a little neck
That's a big head on a little neck


Then the “bobbing-head” action begins!

The earth’s gravitational pull overpowers my scrawny, chicken neck thus causing my melon head to act as though it is bouncing on a trampoline.



My jaw has crashed into my chest so often, my sternum has a double chin!



I’m sure it can all be attributed to a combination of MS fatigue and Baclofen, but jeez this is annoying!

(Now I know what it must feel like to be forced to watch CSPAN all day & night!)


Do you have similar sleepy time issues?

Do you fight it like I do?…Or do you give in to slumbers invitation?


This subject matter came to mind as I was awaiting a particular TV program.  The show came on…I fell asleep…And missed the whole damn thing!

Sure, it’s not a big deal—just a pain in the butt really.  The program will be on again, I’m sure.  Just like I know my chin will rendezvous with my chest soon enough.

Sweet dreams.

  1. I have been absent for some time, but now I remember why I used to love this site. Thank you, I will try and check back more frequently. How frequently you update your site?

  2. Kathy,
    Don’t be a stranger next time!
    When your nightmares begin to subside is about the time I post something new.

  3. My family loves to chuck peanuts at me since they’ve given up on trying to wake me up anymore. Especially when it’s the most action packed movie that I’ve waited forever to see…then the lights are brightened and the credits are scrolling…and I missed the whole damn thing.

    Or how about sitting at the pc trying to do something to only…

    finish it 2 hours later after almost falling out of a chair.

  4. Hey there, odd sock.

    Yes, I fight to keep my eyes open as my eyelids fight back by becoming so heavy I do not have the energy to lift those eyelids as heavy as any barbells in the gym.

    Now, about that TV show you and I were waiting for – when we awoke and the credits were rolling, I was grateful for Tivo. What about you?

  5. Speck,

    The “peanut” game made me laugh out loud!


    C’mon–give in. Close those eyelids!


    What “Tivo?” Isn’t he a quarterback for the Broncos?

    I have a VCR. Remember those? If I only had a blank tape!

  6. yea. I think they’re trying to get one into my open mouth. I’d probably start chewing it. haha.

    Love your site, keep it going. TTYL

  7. It sounds like you’re creating problems yourself by trying to solve this issue instead of looking at why their is a problem in the first place
