    Sleep Deprivation Humor

    February 26, 2007 by Brandy Vencel

    It can be assumed that I don’t sleep much. I didn’t sleep much during my ninth month of pregnancy, and I sleep even less now. This is not a complaint, but merely a statment of fact. I complained about sleep a lot with Number One and Number Two. But since then I have learned to be a bit more grateful. With babies come lots of smiles in exchange for very little sleep, and I think it is well worth the trade.

    However, sleep deprivation can be quite amusing as the weeks go on. This time around, it seems to be disabling my short term memory! Here is a conversation I had on the phone with my sister this week:


    Me: Hold on a second. Somebody hurt someone else. I will be right back.
    Her: Okay.
    Me: {take care of children, come back to phone, and apparently just sit there–I don’t remember doing this!!}
    Her: Hello?
    Me: Hi!
    Her: What are you doing?
    Me: Waiting for you! You told me to hold on.
    Her: No. YOU told ME to hold on.
    Me: {confused} I DID?


    So if you call me and I seem confused…well…I probably am!

    I laughed out loud when I read this. I can relate a little too well to this tale. Thanks for sharing. I feel better about my sleep deprivation/humorous moments!
