Holiday Sleep In

To my son Tommy,

It is Thanksgiving day and 6:30 and you are still sawing some serious Zzzz's.  Unfortunately my ability to sleep in on a Thursday does not exist.  Not only does my normal week day routine hinder my late slumber aptitude, but because it is a holiday, and I went to bed telling myself how special this day is to convince myself to sleep in, I have been up since about 5:00.   The odd thing is on a normal workday/weekday I would be fighting for every lst minute of sleep.  I guess the moral of the story is never ever hype yourself up to sleep in, as the excitement generated because of a rare guilty pleasure may backfire .  Hey, was that a noise I heard from your room?  Should I take that sleepy dreamtime grunt as a signal that you should be up too?  Misery does love company, but I will be kind and will let you least for another twenty minutes, muhahaha.  Happy Turkey Day my son!

Sincerely with love from your dad,
