My wife is across the state, helping out a friend who’s going through a rough time.
Fr whatever reason, I cannot fall asleep without her in the bed. I’m only now remembering I’ve been an insomniac most of my life, much of it going dormant once we got together and started Living In Sin™.
Every time one of us has to be out of town, there’s that little moment of daydreaming. “Man, I’m gonna be the laziest motherfucker tonight. Maybe I’ll have beer and ice cream for dinner!” But three hours later, I’m like, “Is it tomorrow yet?”
Well, I gotta get up in a few hours or work. I'm gonna go back to lying down staring into the abyss (because the lights are off and the room is dark... Sorry, that sounded a little bleak. But yes, I will be staring at nothing waiting for my brains to shush).
