This week I’ve had terrible insomnia and I’m kind of in that strange territory of chronic not-sleeping where you’re not sure if you’re about to go crazy or if you’re about the break through to the zone where people don’t need sleep anymore (which would be awesome because I would use that time to hone my night-vision) and I was just laying down thinking that if I could have anything in the world I think I’d like a tire swing and an electric blanket the most. Not at the same time though. Although actually? Being warm and swinging sounds kind of awesome. Never mind. I need both at the same time. Also, I need some sleeping pills. And probably an editor to to stop me from posting this sort of thing when I’m delirious from lack of sleep. That last one is the most important and also the least likely to come true. Which is fine actually because if I only get one I want the swing. Victor says that insomnia doesn’t give you free wishes and to stop typing so loudly. We all suffer when I have insomnia.
Your turn. What’s the one thing that you really want right now but haven’t bought for yourself? And don’t say “world peace” because you’re going to make the rest of us feel like selfish assholes for wanting canes that hide secret swords in them and I’m kind of emotionally fragile right now from lack of sleep so please just humor me.
Oh and also, a giant hat. Like the kind in My Fair Lady. I want an enormous, ridiculous hat. And to solve a mystery. I still want the swing the most though. Victor says he wants just for me to shut up and go to sleep. I’m pretty sure we’re both going to be disappointed here.
