Three Things Thursday

Amie at I am Alive wants to know How I Sleep for Three Things Thursday. This is a sore subject for me, because my bed is made of solid granite with railroad spikes protruding from it. Therefore it's very difficult to get comfortable, and a good night's sleep is out of the question.

1) How do I sleep. Answer: However Mitchell Lafayette (see 25lb cat) will let me. I usually start out on my stomach and ML jumps on the backs of my legs and wedges his fat goo gut between my knees. I'm pinned to the bed-of-nails like a bug. When I inevitably have to turn over, he dumps off and winds up in the very middle of my bed. Then I spend the rest of the night trying to work my way around him.

2) I have no idea what I might say at night, because Mitchell never tells me anything. I do wake up frequently to the sound of him snoring, or my mice fighting with each other. Luckily, I've never woken up to Mitchell fighting with the mice, that would be bad.

3) Somehow, despite my discomfort, I do manage to dream. I don't have a lot of nightmares, but I often visit the same places night after night. I've used some of these dreamscapes as settings in my writing.


  1. What a great entertaining read. Gotta love cats and their territories ;)

  2. Fat goo gut! Haha, I love it!

  3. LOL! Mitchell is such a character. You should base your next main character on his attitude and activities.
