I’m sure I read about these little napping machines in a sci fi novel many years ago when I was young. But this is a real appliance for people who are too busy to go to bed. Or for people to sleep at work. Before you wonder why people would be encouraged to sleep at work (this is what they do at my phone company, I swear the skeleton staff are all half-asleep) I will show you the advertisment urging us all to nap.
Naps have been shown to benefit almost every aspect of human wellness. The benefits to the body include better heart functioning, hormonal maintenance, and cell repair. They help you live longer, stay more active, and look younger.
Look younger? I’ve been napping all over the place for years and I can tell you right now it hasn’t done anything for me.
Only yesterday as I was taking the bus to the podiatrist I had a refreshing little nap and woke up with the busdriver asking me where I wanted to go…. Kindly chap, he knew I had missed my stop. I hope he didn’t see the dribble on my blouse.
