Exhibit A: Daytime Napper

Yesterday I touched on a subject very dear to my heart, and one that I think deserves a post all on its own. You know to show how important it is and not get lost amongst a plethora of other words.

I am of course talking about, daytime naps. Or otherwise known as Nanna naps. Usually such a luxury is reserved for small children you can read about that HERE, and of course for the elderly. Other lucky daytime nappers include those who have no responsibilities and can nap on weekends (me), those who work part time in an office and part time from home (me) and those who don’t work at all, (unfortunately not me).

Other nappers, are those who without a daytime nap would probably crumble and fall in a heap, new mum’s. You know the old rule, when baby sleeps, so do you. Yep that’s exactly what I intend to do. I’ve been practicing, mainly on Sunday afternoon’s, when the puppy is asleep so am I. But come to think of it, the puppy’s always asleep.

Anyway, you get my point.

If you’re not a daytime napper, you either get too much sleep at night time, or you’re a freak and your body can function on either a) a little amount of sleep, or b) you have too much energy, and could you please send some my way. Not only am I old before my time by sitting at home on a Saturday night watching a movie and eating mango and ice cream, I also start to get a little, ok a lot narky and can very easily lose my shit if I haven’t had that little bit of extra sleep in the form of a daytime nap sometime during the week or weekend.

And so, I would like to bring your attention to the next potential Prime Minister of Australia. She, yes she, would make daytime naps mandatory. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Bern Morley, of the politically party, I mean blog, So Now What?, will introduce the most important policy this Country will ever see. All over the country not just preschools, but workplaces will have to introduce a quiet time area, where workers can rest their weary heads. Maybe a 20 minute power nap will do the trick for you, or you might like to push your napping break to more of a sleep. Either way, please join me in chanting:

Vote 1 Bern Morley for Prime Minister, because our country needs more daytime nappers. Oh and this just in: an additional fan-dangle policy will include free Tim Tams on Australia Day. Seriously, what more could you ask for!

    Wow, Now I have a campaign mamager – we are away. And right now, I reckon due to his foot in mouth disease, I would beat the clappers out of Tony Abbott. Vote 1 Me. Will even throw in Free Hot Cross Buns (fruitless of course) on Easter Sunday.

    Bern’s got my vote. I can see it now, this country would so damn good, we’d have to build giant golden walls around it (“our home is girt by golden walls”?) because everyone would want to move here!
