Sleeping is a KER-RAZY thing to do. It doesn't seem that way when I'm having an easy time sleeping: I do my whole day, and then I climb into my nice soft bed and go to sleep until morning. Perfectly natural! Any children's book can explain to you how it works!
But when I'm NOT sleeping, and I'm the only one awake in a house of sleeping people and animals, it seems like something out of a science fiction novel. Something about androids, maybe. They need to power down for 8 hours to recharge. The lights in their eyes go dark, and their limbs go slack. They need to be properly stored or they'll collapse to the floor and be damaged.
That IS what it's like. At night, human beings must find a safe place to lie down, because our bodies are going to lose consciousness. There we all are in our dark houses, unconscious, while hour after hour goes by unnoticed and unfilled. Picture those houses, stretched out across the miles, all quiet and still. CREEPY.
When I write my thesis on this (tentative title: "Sleep: That Sh*t Ain't Right"), I plan to study in depth why there isn't more looting. It seems like we're easy targets, lying there with our slack limbs and lightless eyes.
I'm on watch, though. You go ahead and sleep.
