Sleep deprivation again
I'm falling asleep at work and it's getting harder and harder to hide the fact from my boss, who sits just several stations away. My eyes lose focus, my head starts to droop, my jaw grows slack and and suddenly find myself dreaming about waves breaking on a white-sand beach 'neath a tall, green mountain.
The phone rings and I waken abruptly, sullied and disturbed, until I realize that I'm at work and I'm not supposed to be sleeping sitting in my chair in front of the whole newsroom. Ack!
My chest feels heavy and my legs are weary too. I simply must find a way to sleep more than two hours a night.
More and more my mind is wandering through bizarre-o landscapes contrived from several episodes of the B&W versions of The Twilight Zone. I wouldn't mind so much if it weren't for the fact that I'm standing in a parking lot.
