that kind of sleep.

monday, i worked for 10 hours.
yesterday, i worked for 12 hours.
when i got home last night, i had a scratchy throat.
today i am hammering the OJ, zinc, and echinacea.
my ears feel like they are stuffed with cotton... from the inside.
the thing i want the most in the world, right now?
more, even, than an engagement ring?
hours and hours of greedy sleep.
the sleep where i wake up and feel awake enough to get up, but instead?
i go back to sleep.
and then i do it again.
and then, even when i do wake up?
i stay in bed and watch movies.
and drink coffee.
and then... maybe?
take a nap.
