Are Any of Us Ever Really Awake?

Originally published on September 22, 2018. Ah, the days when we thought 10pm was late.

So it’s been a long week, and today was a long, but good day. So once the kids were in bed, Laura and I decided against TV, and to have an early night, so we were reading on the couch until it was late enough to let the dogs out and then go to bed (10pm).

At 9:50 I noticed Laura had fallen asleep, and the following ensued:

Me: “hey, Laura get up and go to bed.”
Her: “…”
Me: “Laura go to bed.”
Her: “am I awake?”
Me: “I’m… Not sure?”
