Sleep deprivation


Since last week, I’ve been trying to be more ‘adult’ by going to sleep on time and waking up early. Obviously, it didn’t last. So I went to work today, sleep deprived, ready to take on the world. While traveling, my leg felt a little itchy. So I tried scratching it. That’s when things started to feel a little weird. Not only was the itchiness not going away, but I also couldn’t feel my leg. So I slowly began to panic. My bag was on my lap. I tried to feel my knee. I couldn’t feel a thing. At this point I was panicking so much that I put away the bag  and I tried to take a look at the leg to see if it was dead. It was quite satisfying to see my hand resting on the person sitting next to me in the bus. My hand was on his leg the whole time. I was touching a stranger. What weirded me out even more was that this dude didn’t even budge the whole time.

I know I am weird, but people are weirder.

Sleep deprivation

These are some of the things that I’ve caught myself saying after a good week of sleep deprivation.

1. “I fell on the moving stair case”

2.  Me: “Man! The movie was killer!”

Imaginary therapist: “Which one?”

Me: “The one with the girl who kills monsters with her hearing-aid”

3. Doctor: “So you’re saying, you had it just a few minutes before you got here, but its gone now?”

Me:”Yes. You get 10 points for repeating it correctly”.

4. Manager: “We’ve got some feedback. We need to modify the design so that it will play well in the local market. I have assigned Dexter and Dee Dee to work with you. Can you start with the electronics today?

Me: Sure. Whose Dexter and Dee Dee? 


I have to say that there are a few pros. In some cases, even heightened abilities.

1. I can converse with anyone, literally anyone for 15 minutes straight and actually enjoy it.

2. I can fall asleep at random places.
