1. If I lie down face first on my pillow for a few minutes, I will conk out.

2. Running out of spoons. Spoon Theory summary: People with chronic illnesses start the day off with a large handful of spoons, we lose a few spoons for different activities, and when we run out, our bodies go to shit. I will literally pass out where I stand if I'm moving about when spoons are in the negative range(did too much shit and threw away some of the next day's spoons). 

3. An ounce or two of gin(usually in a cocktail). 

4. Reading a boring book.

5. Being too cold.

6. Being too hot.

I'm more shocked that being too hot puts her to sleep. That sounds like heaven.

That's odd to me, but being freezing while I'm trying to sleep is generally not a problem I have.

It's probably more of a thing the older you get.

Gin is strange shit.  It doesn't turn me crazy, but I seen enough people get crazy with it to make me wonder what the fuck is up with that.

Only if you like feeling lethargic for a few days afterward. Heat is my body's kryptonite.

This was the reaction I expected after hearing so many messed up stories, but all it did was put me out like a light.

It's hit or miss.  I'm just glad I'm not a fucking berserker when it comes to gin or tequila.

I hate heat. I sleep on the top of the blankets from the moment the ice finally melts until late-late fall, often with the fan on. 

Coffee does that for me. If I drink a pot of it, I have a 50-50 chance of passing out sitting up in the chair if I let it.

Living someplace colder sounds so nice. A state with a real winter will make me sleep like a bear the whole season, but darn near anything sounds like an improvement over Georgia.

After waking from a nap a little while ago, I just remembered #7: Eating a bunch of junk food. *Goes to throw Big Mac meal wrappers into trash*

I really do need a place that has actual seasons in order to recover. People may hate the idea of a winter where it hits -30'F at least once but it really helps reset things on all levels.

When I'm in Georgia, I have that AC CRANKED. Screw it, I'm already paying for it so if the housekeepers need parkas to enter so be it.

Wait for my body to pass out from exhaustion.

I am a chronic insomniac. So I have trouble sleeping. I also have sleep apnea, so sleeping doesn’t happen for very long.
