Disrupt [Sep. 8th, 2017|10:28 pm]
After I got home from the stores I kept nodding off. Finally unable to keep my eyes open, I fell asleep sitting up on the couch, and the television wasn't even on. I woke up a few hours later with a crick in my neck and a cat on my lap. I've been walking around in a fog ever since. I hope the neck thing straightens itself out, as it's a long time until my next appointment with the chiropractor.

There is also a headache, which I attribute to caffeine withdrawal. The nephew had polished off the last of my coffee today, so I didn't get any. I bought some when I went shopping, but now it is too late to drink any if I want to sleep any more at all tonight. I'll have some tomorrow, so might be normal then. For now I'm just totally worthless. I'm going to eat something and watch television for a while.

At least it's another cool night.

I tend to do that too, very hard on the neck and other body parts. Glad it's cooler for you.

Nodding off is one of the more annoying perils of age, alas. And risky, if you do it in a chair you can fall out of. That's why I avoid sitting in narrow, armless chairs these days.

Historians of furniture generally surmise that the wingback chair was invented to protect people from side drafts while sitting in front of the fire, but I suspect it was invented by some old person who didn't want to fall out of it while dozing.

Love thinking of old age perils as annoyances, it's a comfort, I'll hang on to that.

Also quite interesting to learn about wing back chairs, and I think you might just be right.
