We haven’t slept for years… at least since March 6, 2012. You know it’s bad when insomnia isn’t the reason for your lack of sleep. The devil is to blame, and she won’t let us have a full night of sleep until we give in to all of her demands: a 60 inch TV, a brand new Dell Inspiron 560 computer and a new pair of socks. Until then, Morpheus moved out.
We’re a sad, utterly nonfunctional bunch. We came back from a week at the in-laws, where we were loved and fed, on Monday. Before we left, we tidied up the house, we fed the cats and frogs, cleaned the litter, made our beds, and changed the toilet paper roll. From the moment we stepped in, it took a staggering 27 minutes for the dishes to stack up, for the laundry to form a new carpet and for our downstairs’ neighbour to complain about the smell. Sisyphus prefers his boulder.
