I am an insomniac. I hate it. But sometimes, odd things come back to haunt me, or at least make me giggle.
Right now, I have been awake for more than 38 hours. I’m feeling okay right now; not operate heavy machinery okay, but I’m aware of what I am doing okay. Just don’t trust my reaction time.
Several hours ago, however, I obviously wasn’t quite “okay”.
You see, I dashed off a happy birthday e-mail to one of my bestest buddies - my younger brother. He’s 22 today, yay, bro! You made it this far with all of your f-a-c-u-l-t-i-e-s intact. Which is more than I can say for some of us. ie: me.
He responds, and in his response, I see my email to him quoted. It’s a normal, cheery happy birthday note from a loving big sister. Happy Birthday, hope you like what you got, my husband picked this out for you because he thought you’d like it, what did you get from Nanny, etc. Until I get to the closing line. Where the hell this came from, I have no idea. But here it is:
"**I have contacted my sources and they say hello.I will warm the buns, you send me a comminique, ASAP. ** "
What the hell was that?
So, I check my sent messages, and sure enough, I did write it. I was hoping that maybe he added something weird, or something got messed up along the way. Nope. I wrote it.
Someday, I’m going to have some wicked insomnia flashbacks. Trippy.
