Lately I have been falling asleep in the middle of homework assignments or other responsibilities...quite a while before I am done with them. (Okay, let's be honest...this isn't exactly a recent development...) Anyway, one such night I had fallen asleep, and a little while later I woke up to see Sam, standing on the bed, diligently working on this:
I was quite certain I must still be asleep. I tend to be very disoriented when I initially wake up (Sam has fun with that), and I was sure I was imagining things. What could my husband be doing taping a colander to the ceiling?
A few seconds later, however, I was still seeing it, and I concluded it was real. When I asked Sam groggily, "What are you doing?" He said, "Isn't that better?" The colander softened the light's intensity by about 30%. I guess it was just too bright for him!
Too bad the packing tape didn't stick to the ceiling very well...maybe from now on he'll just have to try my technique and fall asleep before the light seems too bright. :)
