All you ladies out there married to Indonesian men, have you ever wondered if your husband has narcolepsy? Seriously, I have never known a man who can fall asleep so quickly and in such uncomfortable positions as my husband. Actually, I’ve seen his brothers and father pass out with equal speediness so perhaps it’s a narcoleptic gene…
While I toss and turn for hours thinking about the pile of laundry the needs to be washed, the cat food that needs to be bought, and the possibility of a catastrophic natural disaster any moment, my husband is starfished on the living room floor in his underwear “watching tv”.
I would have to be about a bottle of wine deep to pass out with my face stuck to the tiles, and I think the family would wonder if there was something seriously wrong if they found me like this. Actually, my mother-in-law once passed by while I was stretching my back on the floor (I was very pregnant) and came running into the house totally panicked thinking I had collapsed. A nice reminder that if I were to collapse on my own I wouldn’t be half eaten by the cat before someone found me.
Hmmm…tangent. Well, I am jealous of these lucky boys that can sleep like they’ve fallen from the sky but I also am aware that people may trip over me, so I’ll stick to my bed.
