    9. "This is just a 15 minute power-nap like the one they raved about in that time mangagement course you sent me to."

    i actually had a job where i was permitted to sleep. me and the tech (nice kid). two of us to do nothing. it was an acute psych unit on a residential campus that was supposed to be marketed for general admissions as well (not just for the kids on campus). well.... they didn't market it, so in 3 months of doing 2 16-hour shifts/weekend, we had 3 kids- and two were there at the same time. for a week each.

    we were allowed to sleep as long as we were there, in case one of the dorms had to send someone over (never happened). the tech took the couch one night, and i pulled up two chairs (kinda coffin like ). i dozed off- and when i woke up, i looked around, and no tech.

    i looked around the unit, and finally found him huddled over one of his textbooks. awake. seemed "off"....

    i asked if he was ok.....yep.

    i asked if he had gotten any sleep.... nope.

    i asked again if he was ok.....fine. :spin:

    i asked if i snored.

    "oh my god...... the windows were buckling and the animals were running into the woods"......

    well, at least i knew he still knew how to speak in sentences :d

    (after 3 months of terroristic boredom, playing video games, feeding marshmallows to the raccoon family that showed up every night, and being brought food from the kitchen, and an unfortunate situation with a sick baby raccoon on a campus of emotionally disturbed kids, they decided to pack it in. i wasn't going to be able to drive to the other campus d/t a failing vehicle, so went elsewhere).

    I have a Friend from Childhood by the name of Radical Nool. I later realized that he had a form of Narcolepsy. So began calling him "Narcoleptic Nool".

    Back in his Partying Days, he might fall asleep while driving. Scary. However, he was able to come up with a solution for his malady: Rad, like most back in the 70's, had long hair. So, if he was driving late at night, he would roll up a good portion of his hair in the car window. In nodding off, the dropping of his head would pull his hair, and he would snap back awake.

    Nowdays, they have all sorts of new-fangled devices to aid Narcoleptic Nod Offs. But Rad is still well and alive today due to his little Intervention.
