the ineffable joy of a good nap.
Notice the toes. Even the toes are happy.
There are certain people out there to whom the mere subject of this blog will be a turn-off. They will see the title and think, "This better be a scathing attack against naps and all they stand for, cause if it ain't, I'm taking my eyeballs elsewhere!" I wish those people would have an open mind for a change, and just keep reading, but I don't fool myself. By now they're already enjoying one of the multitudinous anti-nap blogs out there. I'm sure you're familiar with some of them yourself: "Naps are for Suckers" or "Nap, Snap!" are just a couple that come to mind.
How little those people know of what they're missing. I feel for them, for once I was among their number. I thought a nap meant I had to lie down and stop doing things. Now I realize it means I get to lie down and stop doing things.
This blog, then, is for you, who already appreciate naps in all their glory. Aren't naps glorious? Isn't it a treat to lie down in the middle of the day and just go to sleep? It's better than fresh-squeezed lemonade. Better than honey-crisp apples.
I just love me some naps.
