A Working Night Shift Boomer Story

Today I began my preparation for that thing I call, day time sleeping. My windows were covered in dark drapes to keep the beautiful sunlight out. On my bed is a nice comfort foam mattress pad. The sheets are clean, soft and smell like lavender. Now you know lavender has a calming effect. The temperature of the room is just right, not too cold or not too hot. Sweetie, my dog is near and all ready for her snooze. My bubble bath is over. My phone is turned off. The computer is shut down. I turned on soft mediation music on my C D player.

Ahh, now to jump into the bed, turn off the light,relax and get some GOOD PEACEFUL SLEEP. I reached over to turn the switch off on my bedside lamp. Beside the lamp I had placed a decorated small little pillow that I bought for kicks many years ago. I had left the pillow at my grand children’s house Earlier this week they returned it to me.

The small little black and white pillow has writing on it. In large letters it says, “IN DOG YEARS..I’M DEAD.” After reading those words my mind began to play tricks with me. So much for SLEEP!Now you know why I need my SENSE OF HUMOR! Enjoy your sleep tonight and don’t forget to have fun!
