Falling asleep at inoppertune times

Sometimes I can’t be everything to everyone. There is only one body which can’t be divided. Making everyone happy is on the top of my list, but it can’t be done when I’m overextending myself. And when that happens, I get tired, and no one is happy in the end.


While I’m entertaining someone, I start to lose interest and can’t concentrate. Within a few seconds, I almost fall asleep at an inopportune time. Part of me wants to say speed things along before the snoring starts, and the other part of me wants to run out of there with a bag over my head, covering my shame and embarrassment.

My ego is deflated.

For the rest of the day, I feel dejected and rejected.

What the hell is wrong with me? Why am I falling asleep? Am I that tired? Shouldn’t I be ready for everything? Am I proof that no matter how hot someone is, I can still slip into slumber? What the hell is my energy? Fuck, where the hell is my testosterone?

For the rest of the day, I try to stay awake, but to no avail. I almost fall asleep while driving and have to pull the car over to close my eyes for a few minutes. I meet a friend for coffee only to yawn incessantly for what it seems like hours (and the litre of coffee plus a large iced tea only makes me want to urinate, not stay awake). I cancel plans I have with another friend for later on in the night (even though it’s supposed to be a lot of fun) shortly before I pick him up. To top it off, I pass by a friend's house because she won't talk to me if I pass on another of her invites.

Is there any way to stop the snoozing?

If it was possible, I’d split my body into four; one set of quadrants. That way I can be at four places at once, entertaining four different groups of people while only using up ¼ of my energy (and ¼ of sleep would be required to keep me awake).

Of course, wake me up when that happens... I’ll probably be asleep by then.

You're way too young for this kind of shit. I mean, when you get to be, say, 45, then you'll have good reason to need Geritol....and a good solid 8-9 hours of sleep per night. Take an extra B-complex vitamin each day and call me in the morning. Or just roll over and wake me up.....whatever.

So, basically, you want to be a Superhero with the powers to stay awake and to divide yourself in 4 to spread your good will (or is that good willie) across Canada.

I can read between the line!

This is why God gave us sugar and coffee.

Your day should be a carefully-orchestrated series of peaks and valleys. Sliding downhill? Grab another frappucino and a peanut-butter cup. Sure, you'll crash, but odds are you'll have passed out by then.

Plus, are you exercising? By my calculation we're allotted one hour of energy a day. I take particular care not to blow it all at some gym.

It is clear that we can not please every one even if we want to. this is because there are some similarities and differences among each one of us.
