Today I woke up way too early, then didn't make up for it with a nap, and it seems unlikely I'll be able to keep my eyes open much longer. Having stuffed myself with popcorn isn't helping. Popcorn is a soporific, for me at least— unless I eat it in a movie theater, of course. I've never been able to fall asleep in movie theaters, no matter how tired I am. |
But then I haven't been to a movie in a theater for decades, so maybe I could do it now, and just don't know it. I have no intention of trying it, though. For one thing, movie theater tickets have gotten very expensive. For another, I've heard that most movies have gotten very loud. This seems to be because teen-aged boys buy most movie tickets, and teen-aged boys like loud noises. Naturally, movie theaters being full of teen-aged boys is another good reason not to go to one and see if I fall asleep. It would be like falling asleep at a frat party, and that's something that seldom turns out well for anyone.
I just checked the almanac and found that the next full moon is on January 1. A New Year full moon! That must be either a very good omen, or a sign that 2018 will be full of howling madness! My money is on the latter— but that's mainly because I expect the trends of 2017 to continue.
The avocado I bought this week is finally ripe. I'm going to go make some guacamole and nuke some frozen taquitos to put it on. I hope I don't fall asleep and face-plant into it all before I can finish eating them.
