Being old, sometimes I will get tired and/or cranky and want a nap. Being an insomniac, it’s not very easy for me to nap so I never actively try. However, if I’m truly knackered, an involuntary nap can ambush me.
That happened earlier and I woke myself up twice by sleep-babbling. The first time, I was earnestly talking backwards. The second time, I was shouting about chamberpots.
The human brain is truly a marvel, but that doesn’t make the stuff that comes out of it any less stupid.
