My body does not appreciate sleeping through the night. Usually it’s my bladder that wakes me up.
I have a friend who is a few hours ahead of who sometimes chats with me while I can’t get back to sleep. The other night, while I was awake, he asked me if I was chatting during intermission. I think I like that better than insomnia. Sleep intermission is what I’ll be calling it from now on.
Friends you don’t need
The above linked article talks about friends that you don’t need. These are generally people who have been with you in the past, but your needs haven’t grown at the same rate.
If you have friends like these, maybe you should consider new friends to take with you into the future.
- The Complainer
- The Naysayer
- The Doubter
- The Bragger
- The Flaker
I have a lot of friends who fit under #1 and #5. I try hard to not plan things with either group. The flakers get me more often than not. I trust that they have changed, and they haven’t. Live and learn, I suppose.
The world’s tallest thermometer was just outside of Las Vegas. At one point, it hit 134F. When we were there, it was 64F. They had a clean restroom and the clerk in the gift shop was friendly.
A friend and I drove to Las Vegas. We didn’t really have a timeline, so we drove until we needed to pee, needed gas, were hungry, or saw something interesting. It took longer than anticipated, but there was no stress because no one needed to be anywhere by a certain time.
I’ll be posting more about the trip over the next few days.
