What a Great Guest!

My friend D. asked me to join her for lunch today, and on the way to her house I almost fell asleep in my car on one of Jersey's most dangerous highways.

We went out to lunch at Panera Bread (yummy!), I managed semi-intelligent conversation, and when we got back to her house, I said hi to her husband and son, sat down, and fought off sleep as I tried to be a polite guest.

I know my mouth was moving, but God knows what was coming out of it.
I think a lot of it was the ever-convincing "Uh-hum..." "Huh!" and "Hmmm!" I'm fairly certain they believed I was deep in conversation with them, but who can ever know for sure?

D. said, "You need a nap." Yep, I sure did. So she said, "Go, then. Nap." I went to sleep in their guest room and slept from 3:45 until 6:00 p.m., when they knocked to make sure I hadn't died. Or moved in.

We had dinner and I left by 7:15. What a great guest! Can I come take a nap at YOUR house?

I couldn't agree more, Teri. I think it's a seasonal thing. I just can't remember whose guest room I slept in LAST year.

Jen, the bed they gave me was for a child. So, yeah, I'll take the sleeping bag. Will you be ordering in pizza for dinner? PLEASE!!!??

That is a good friend who knows you need a nap and lets you use their bed!

Zed, I would have done the same thing. If I knew my friend was about to fall over I would push them into the guest room and make them comfy.

Me too, Teri. My friend Maureen was pregnant when she and her husband came to dinner. Before dinner was served she asked if she could take a nap because pregnancy was making her so tired. I also set her up in the guest room, and she came out 3 hours later.

See? I'm almost normal!

No dinner? Now that would take all the fun out of it. How am I supposed to have an excuse to cook if you don't stay for dinner?

No dinner, No nap. er.. uh.. you can still take a nap.

Yeah, you just try and take a nap at my house - Tobiko won't let you. She rarely looks like that photo.

Kristi, I watched the videos of Tobiko, and I cannot understand how you can live with all that wonderful cuteness! They have almost endless energy, which, in turn, means, if I watch them, I need to nap. ... Huh. See how the universe all sort of blends?

Mixednut, if you make homemade French onion soup, I'm in.
