A Severe Case of Sleeping Sickness


Overheard, now that No.2 Son is finally ensconced in the caravan I bought last weekend:

Chairman (via Facebook Messenger at 10:01): "When you're awake, come in for some breakfast."

Chairman (via Facebook Messenger at 12.38 when No.2 Son had still not shown signs of life): "Make that lunch."

Seems I now have two teenage sons with severe cases of sleeping sickness.

  1. I always found that a sprinkling of cold water over the head brought about an immediate cure.

    1. Or a kick up the backside.

      Strange that I was never a late sleeper as a teenager.

  2. Did any person in your seamanship school ever over sleep ?

    1. Only the officers. Students could oversleep by about half a second, max...
