Or something like that. The Sandman's bill came due several hours early Monday. By 4:00 that afternoon, I was having trouble walking because the darned floor wouldn't stay level -- and neither would the walls. When it finally dawned on me that I could either drive home now or be carried out on a shutter at quitting time, I asked the boss if he could spare me early. By good luck, the evening shift was fully staffed (we're already in vacation season), so I made my cautious way home and was in bed within the hour.
Eleven hours later when the alarm went off, I resented it only mildly. Maybe I'm finally caught up on sleep.
