Day 91 – Breath it in deep man, let it fill your lungs.

Slumber is like a child’s blanket. It gives a feeling of warmth, peace and security. At a quarter past four in the morning that blanket had definitely been stolen from me by my arch enemy thirst. I woke up gasping like a goldfish, my tongue sticking to the roof of my mouth as though overnight I had developed the ability to secrete glue instead of saliva. I wonder where that leaves me on Darwin’s ladder of evolution. A natural ability to cope with peanut butter or super human stamp licking skills are probably not the type of thing a potential mate is looking for.

I reached over to my litre bottle of water placed on my bedside cabinet. Squirting in a jet of liquid I was reduced to the status of plain human again. Feeling satisfied I laid back into my pillow and stared at the ceiling. What does one do that early in the morning? I decided that the best course of action was a return to sleepy town. I waited for the bus but I think I’d missed it. By 5am it still had not arrived so naturally I checked the comments on my pictures. With that task completed I had successfully managed to kill three minutes, including boot up time. I need more popular pictures to occupy my early mornings! Turning around in my bed I caught a draft across my body. The skin rippled in reply to the chill and I instinctively pulled up the covers to neutralise this chain reaction.

That’s when the bus arrived.

    Please sleep a few hours for me. You look so quiet and cozy.

    i like the inclusion of your (wrist)watch... nice prose to go with the shot. very creative !
  • Carolyn PRO 9y

    Great shot, and I'm glad that you managed to find sleep again - I know how frustrating that can be, as recent photos will attest. I thought once I quit my job I could sleep lots and finally be well-rested. Seems cruel that that's not actually the case.
  • Andy Watson PRO 9y

    Great shot...I especially hate being woken up around work time when you are off...I never get back to sleep like this morning. The only saving grace was the rain that put me right back to sleep...ahh rain in the morning!
