most of the time, i hate taking naps. i wake up feeling gross and grumpy and usually worse than i would have felt if i had just stayed tired for a few more hours. mind you, sometimes i have days when i can take a nap and wake up refreshed like a normal/weird person depending on who you're asking. but those are few and far between. last night i fell asleep at around seven thirty or something while watching tv with my brothers and woke up about an hour later. now, in the grand scheme of things, an hour really isn't that long. and all i was missing was reruns of the fairly oddparents (speaking of which, have you guys heard about the movie for it this summer when they come to life? and timmy is played by drake bell and is twenty three but still acting like a kid so he can keep cosmo and wanda? i'm not sure how i feel about it. the commercial looks like it might be okay, but all i can do is think of avatar and cringe.) but somehow i woke up with a headache and a bad mood and a feeling that i just slept through half my life. i tried playing online scrabble, but after a turn or two realized that i just was not in the mood to think up words. then i started to read and even that couldn't make me forget how gross i was feeling. eventually, i just had to go to sleep even earlier than usual, and after already sleeping an hour, i ended up waking up at three. an hour of tossing and turning later, and i managed to sleep until six:thirty when my alarm woke me up after sleeping too long. i don't know about you guys, but when i sleep too long i wake up groggy and gross.
so basically, the moral of the story is not to take naps at night. or ever.
