Random thoughts of a sleepless mind.

There is many a website from author and non authors alike who make statements like “sleep with a notebook beside your bed and if you are woken by an idea write it down so you don’t forget it.”
These files, more than fifteen years in the making, are clear proof you SHOULDN’T do such things.

Sleepless kid

Sleepless kid

Is that one of the kids screaming?
No maybe not, must have caught myself at the end of a dream, just close eyes and try to sleep.
I’m going to roll over, nope I can’t be bothered.
Gee don’t the sheets and doona make a lot of noise when you roll over.
Was that one of the kids?
Listen harder there was a noise twice now.
Why don’t you just get up and check?
Shut up brain if I can’t hear it now it’s obviously not there.
Stop telling me it’s there.
Awe crap well done brain now I’m getting up to check on the kids.
Why is sleeping such a hard Slog these days?

Talking Brain

Talking Brain

Did you know by the time a person is forty they’ve had at least one huntsman spider walk over their face while they sleep?
Shut up brain.
It’s true
But I don’t care.
But it is true.
Well maybe that’s why some mornings I don’t wake up hungry.
Not much sustenance in a huntsman, even a big one.
How would you know?
I’m your brain I always know more than you.
That can’t be true, you’re my brain you only know what I know.
No, you only know what I let you know.
I know you wont let me go to sleep

Weed Dreams

Weed Dreams

Car door at 3:45am, that’s unusual for this street.
Voices, quiet, can’t understand them but can hear them.
Coming from the house diagonally across the road, the house where the grass hasn’t been cut since the new tenants moved it.
Never see anyone at that house, the cameras are new though.
More voices.
Another car.
It’s got to be a drug house.
That’s a siding van door
Maybe they are harvesting the crop
Should get up and have a peak out of the window, as long as there is no light behind me they wont see the blinds move.
There is definitely something going on over there.
More voices.
4:20am, thirty five minutes now, gotta be a decent crop they are harvesting.
I’m going to get up and have a look
There is the sound of the sliding van door again.
Now an engine, definitely a van engine, too big to be a car and definitely doesn’t sound like the Lexus I’ve seen parked there.
Whoever it is is leaving
Oh they have gone, guess there is no point looking now.
