My brain, large scissors and a fat kid rolling down a hill

I wish I had an off-button attached to my head. Not one of those standard buttons that stick out, mind you. I mean, I wouldn’t want to turn my brain off by accident. Just imagine, standing in line at the grocery store or the bank (okay, maybe not the bank. Nobody goes to the bank anymore) and you just scratch your head and all of a sudden it’s lights out. But if I could get a button on a time switch, or something, that would be perfect.

You see, my brain refuses to turn itself off after I’ve gone to bed. Even when it’s been more or less non-functional all day long, it suddenly springs to life once I’m horizontal.

It’s especially when the brain-ball of wrinkly gel starts to imagine repetitive movements that it becomes impossible to stop. Last night, for example, I started (for some reason) to think of a kid on a swing. It went back and forth, back and forth, refusing to stop. So I had to think up a pair of huge scissors to cut the swing down. But then the fat brat started rolling down the hill. Obviously I had to place I rather large rock in his path. There was a muffled splat and then the situation was under control. This time...

So… Does this mean I’m weird?

Just means you are far more imaginative than the rest of us who count sheep!

Jazz said...

It means you're way overdue to get the hell out of Hellhole. At least if you were in civilisation, you'd think of more interesting repetitive movements.

Msdemmie - I've never thought of sheep, really. I don't know why.

Jazz - Well, yes. That's true.

I'll have what you had before bed. In fact, I'll have two. Thanks.

Oh me Gawd, you too! My brain is even more active while I'm sleeping - doesn't sound good does it?! But it means that I wake up tired from all the activity! boo hoo

Rain said...

I am the same way and I find it always happens when major changes are happening in my life. I get very grumpy from lack of sleep and then everyone around me pays for it! sigh.

Steven Novak said...

If it means that you're weird than I'm equally as weird.

Uh-oh...

We alike?

*shivers* ;)

Are we related in some way?!?

choochoo said...

Mist1 - Okay. That'll be 10,50

Tisha - I have the same problem. Sleeping can be completely exhausting.

Rain - I'm glad lack of sleep doesn't make me all that grumpy. I'd be a horrible person... lol

Steve - Hah! You WISH you were like me :P

Evil spock - I dunno. Might be. My grandfather was a sailor, and you know what they say about them;)

Too much caffeine?

jillie said...

Oh man...I know just how you feel! That's where the vitamin "A" comes in....Ambien! hahaha...sometimes when I am really riled up, that doesn't even shut the brain off.

I have the same problem some nights...and only creating a small pinpoint of light inside my eyelids (it's magic, I am) and then focusing on that light works for me.

Which means, compared to me, you're not at all strange.

Tim Rice said...

I hate it when that happens to me. Fortunately, it doesn't happen too often. :)

Be well!

choochoo said...

Lively - I think that my brain is naturally caffinated at night. It's like magic

Jillie - Maybe something a little more like a sledgehammer would do the trick for me... Hmm

Jocelyn - I know the pinpoint of light magic. Sometimes I do that, but then my eyeballs can't decide on which position they'd like to be in, and it feels funny and then that's even worse than thinking too much.

Tim - It wouldn't be as annoying if intelligent thoughts kept me awake, but it's mostly moronic stuff. lol

I had a looped dream last night where I was running away from a bunch of rednecks into the safety of a group of gay men. I kept ending up at the same original point, running through the dream over and over.
