Sleep . . .Wonderful Sleep

 

I have always been a sleeper.  And for most of my life, I’ve been able to sleep on command, no matter whether I was tired or not, or how much caffeine I had consumed.   But that’s one of the things that has changed with age.  So, I sometimes take Bayer PM if I think I’m going to have trouble sleeping.  And so does hubby.

Yesterday, during the day, Hubby and I did something unusual for retirees — we both worked at doing hard physical stuff, so we were both a little stiff by evening.  As we were getting ready to go out to dinner with friends, we had the following conversation:

Me:  “I’m feeling a little sore, so I’m going to take some aspirin before we go.”  I went to the kitchen, took some aspirin and returned to the bedroom where we were getting ready.

A few minutes later Hubby said: “You know, I’m a little stiff too.  I think I’ll take some aspirin too.”  He left the room.

A few minutes later he returned.

Hubby:  “Did you take your aspirin out of the bottle in the kitchen?

Me:  “Yes.  Why?”

Hubby:  “Because I think you may have taken Bayer PM.  It’s the bottle setting closest to the front of the cabinet.”

Me:  “Well, this could be an interesting dinner.  If you notice me missing, look under the table.”

Hubby:  “I’m most concerned with drowning.  Don’t order soup.”

Our dinner was fun and uneventful.  But I did sleep like a log last night!

    I didn’t know how great it was to always be able to sleep, until it stopped being a given. Now, I realize how fortunate I was. Thank goodness for things like Bayer PM!
