It’s 3:40 in the morning and I should be blissfully asleep, but instead I’m sitting here chatting with you because my monkey mind is too busy screaming at me. My week left me with too many unprocessed things bouncing around in my brain, one of the more distressing aspects of being an introvert, hence the restless sleep. As enjoyable as spending time with you may be, it that doesn’t bode well for the rest of my day, so I’m going to natter on for a bit, have some nice hot tea and then see if I can grab a few more hours of sleep.
OK, now it’s 4:59. I found some interesting stuff on the internet and got sidetracked. My boiling water has grown cold. (I love electric kettles because I don’t have to worry about them burning dry on the stove when I get lost in thought. They just shut themselves off and wait patiently for me to remember they are there.)
Because the introvert sweater was such a hit, I was looking for some new introvert nap wear and I think I’ve found some. Let me try them on you:
How about a cocoon sleeping bag? You can just install it anywhere and zip yourself away from the world. As far as I can tell, it never made it from design to production. I’m not sure how comfortable it would be.
Here’s another humdinger of a design that supposedly keeps you comfortably cushioned anywhere. I think that I’d just feel claustrophobic and vulnerable.
The ostrich pillow looks interesting. I could shut out the world for my much needed power naps. (The company uses some clever advertising with a TED-like ding at the opening of the video and some very Apple-like content. The video is outdated, asking for kickstarter contributions, but the pillow is now for sale. I’d love to try one if I could get it at a good price.)
Then there is the energy pod. Google uses them in their offices. Only $8000 USD each. I would love to try one.
But here is my ultimate napping wear. It’s actually a bed, so not very portable, but one I think I’d like in our bedroom. It’s called the Cosmos Bed and here’s what it looks like at night:
5:39 AM… I’ve played a little, had a snack and some hot tea. Now it’s time for a nap before I take on my weekend. Happy dreaming!
