Sometime ago, I came across this article that was of school of thought that sleeping on one’s feet posed a risk. It went further to state that sleep experts (there are experts of everything. I tell you most solemnly) were highly doubtful as we are human beings and it was nearly impossible.
Leemao!!! I laugh in emi sinu, emi sita. Have they come across sleep deprived/craving individuals? Or those that after their sleepless call have the day after packed as well? Maybe not.
Well then, let me enlighten you. This situation calls for no alarm, unless he doesn’t wake up after (God forbid).
I explain to you an art, known by all, dozed by the lot but only slept through by the pros. These aren’t power naps. These are off the light, use my wrapper to cover myself kind of sleep while on their feet.
Be in the midst of people that are talking.
Let their voices mesh into one, sort of a choral
Arrange your unsuspecting face
Gradually, embrace the inner man, slipping into semi-unconsciousness
This causes a voice reduction effect in which you hardly hear a thing
Hold on to your school bag; gives you the pillow effect.
To be honest, as I write this, names come to mind. I feel as you read this too, you see faces… It’s okay if you’re on this table.
As concerned individuals, friend or foe- only three things can be done at times.
1. Allow them to continue (who feels that cutting sleep short is disrespectful?)
2. Wake them when you have to leave a place (seriously!!)
3. Join them-but please if you’re unsure of your standing skills, kindly find a surface to lean on and if you can’t, take heart.
P.S This is by no means a full proof process. DO NOT ATTEMPT WITH THESE IN VIEW. THE PROTOTYPE FOR THAT IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
More inputs would be welcomed by connoisseurs of this craft.
