Have you ever thought...
about how nice it would be if you could follow the same procedure for catnaps as your cat? Imagine being able to catch up on much needed sleep whenever and wherever you felt like it without having to worry about any possible repercussions for your behavior.
If someone was talking to you about something you didn't find the least bit interesting, you would be allowed to simply close your eyes and catch 40 winks until they were finished. It could be a win-win situation for everyone. The person talking could continue without interruption until their vocal chords were exhausted, and you would have a chance to reenergize.
My cats go to sleep while I'm talking at them all the time. It's a lot more polite than walking away from someone in the middle of a conversation. If you're lucky, the other person might even think you're taking a few moments to contemplate what he or she is saying.
And, it sure would make the workday go by a lot faster if you could lay your head down on your computer keyboard to catch a few zzzzzs once in a while. Imagine you're typing away at your desk when a yawn sneaks up on you. Instead of dashing for the nearest coffee pot, you would simply save your work and lay your head down on the squishy keypad for a quick catnap.
If cats find it comfortable, I'm sure we would too...eventually.
Enlightening comments about today's thought are welcomed, so please feel free to share.
Until next time, remember...
I catnap now and then. But I think while I nap, so it's not a waste of time.
