Day 76

A few years ago, my old coworker Yolanda gave me a coffee mug that said, “I like to party, and by party I mean take naps.” For several reasons, this was an appropriate gift. First, I like to take naps. Second, naps are where the pants aren’t, and I am not about wearing pants if I don’t have to. Third, if I wasn’t taking a nap back in those days, I needed some coffee to keep me awake. Like I said, a perfect gift. 

(Find this and other nap-related memes here.)

When I came home from work today, I was worn out. Today wasn’t a particularly exhausting day. I didn’t have class, and I had a cup of coffee to help me raise my energy level. For good measure, I put a picture of my coffee mug on Snapchat. (My username is kimbarlie if you want to get awesome snaps from me.) 

Despite the fact that I drank coffee and documented it on Snapchat today, I was wiped out and took an evening nap. It was everything I hoped for and more, even though I woke up still tired. So, I got to thinking about my blog post for today and decided that I wanted to dedicate my post to naps. I considered writing about the best nap I ever took, but I couldn’t pick just one. Maybe I’ll narrow it down and write about that some other day. Instead, today I present you with the Kimberly Davis List of Top Ten Reasons to Nap. The list is in no particular order other than chronologically by when the thought occurred to me.

  1. Kimberly,

    My favorite time for a nap is after running 50 miles.

  2. I haven't done a 50-miler yet, but I will SO take a nap after my first one!
