Go The (Moderator Edit) To Sleep

John53

I go leaps and bounds
I watch TV, I fall asleep.
I read a book, I fall asleep.
I go to bed, I toss and turn for hours.

Oh my, did I say that!

Just be thankful for +1 TV, since I am invariably having to use this when I often fall asleep whilst watching TV (usually during the ad breaks and where I mute such), and the same seems to happen when listening to the radio - too boring? :oops:

Here's the kids response to said book:
https://reluctantmom.wordpress.com/2011/11/10/get-the-****-out-of-my-room/
Father, oh father, why are you so mad?
I’m just a little kid—I’m not trying to be bad


Yet every night, you cuss under your breath
It’s almost as if you think that I’m deaf


Yes, I get it, your life has so changed
But that’s no reason to start acting deranged


1 out of 3 kids doesn’t live with a dad
Now I know why—some fathers are pathetic and sad

I know you welcomed me into your life
After carefree coitus with your career-minded wife


Now you’re both exhausted and seem only to argue
Is it my fault? Really, what should I do?


Here’s an idea: Relax and have a beer
And let me solve our little problem by being the man here


Did you know that I’ll fall asleep 40 percent faster
If you create a bedtime routine that I can master?


Didn’t think so, and there’s another benefit I’ll cite
With a routine, I’ll sleep an extra hour each night

And if I shut my eyes nightly for 10 hours of peace
Research shows I’m much less likely to wind up obese


Experts also say you should read to me 30 minutes a pop
Yet after just one little book you can’t wait to stop


If it bores you that much, I’ll give you a tip
Just make it up, the words you can skip


This all boosts my vocabulary and word knowledge
Which someday may help me score a scholarship to college

Now let’s talk about when I want to color and swing
Why is it you can’t stop all that goddamned texting?


The brainiacs say if you pay attention to me
I’m likely to be less violent when I hit puberty


Yet you don’t quite grasp the concept of play, I infer
Maybe I should tell Mom what’s on your web browser


If you want me to stop crying, then let’s lose the ’tude
And go outside—studies say exercise improves my mood

Please straighten up, Dad, and get your head out of your ***
My young and innocent years just aren’t going to last


I can’t take care of myself, so I must look to you
Now man up and sack up—you know what to do


Give me a kiss and bid me “Good night!”
And think about how you can make this thing right


’Cuz if forever you’re going to be chock-full of gloom
You’d might as well just get the f**k out of my room

For all you insomniacs out there.
Yes, I basically have to distract my "self" so it no longer insists on existing.
To me that is basically what sleep is. When the conscious self no longer exists and the unconscious mind takes over.
Some nights the conscious self holds onto its existence and refuses to give in to the unconscious.

Dear Friends. Fear not. Your insomnia is a thing of the past.
ps I have posted you all a draft of my novel.
