He tucks it right under his chin

I don't really have a preference between sleeping on my left side, my right side, my back or my stomach. I've slept in all of those positions at different times, and done just fine. When I was a kid, it didn't matter what position I was sleeping in, but it did matter very much that the covers were covering my neck and both of my ears. In any kind of weather, I would wrap the covers around my face so that they tucked under my chin, and then I would be safe. I'm not really sure what I was afraid of, because it seemed to be the back of my neck that I was concerned about covering. It's not exactly the prime location for vampire bites, nor Mafia garrotings. Maybe I was concerned about earthquakes and pieces of ceiling falling on me, so I had to curl up and cover my neck. Who knows? It made sleeping in a sleeping bag really weird.

I've gotten better about it. Sleeping in different situations and cover-types and temperatures forced me to get over the need to always have my neck covered, but given the choice I still prefer to sleep in a cold room, all tangled up in the covers, with a blanket between me and the vampires.

Totally faking it

What are you doing up at this hour? Get off the Internet!

Pooh to you Alfie! This was suppose to be my point! hahahahahahahahahaha

Now that I've actually read your post . . . It may be genetic. Your cousin always slept in a very similar way. Past tense because I no longer know how true this is, but their spousal unit may know. ;-)

Any other sisters/cousins want to admit to this?

gravatar alfie - November 5, 2007 - 10:43 AM -

Nope.

I was awake because I had a 9am class.

Alfie ... I read that as a gam class and thought for a moment you were taking a class on legs! I should be wearing da bifocals!

Gah! I just came here, and am missing all the competition fun! Boo.

It's still early in the month!

Wait....who took that picture? A vampire? A mafioso?

gravatar srah - November 5, 2007 - 2:01 PM -

My right arm, reaching out from under the blankets! (I took like 17 photos until I got one that worked.) That's what sucks about not having any really close friends down here... there is no one to whom I would want to ADMIT that I was taking fake-sleeping pictures, much less get them to come over and hold the camera. The Internet misses out on a lot of great stuff for just that reason.

You are so strange. ;-)

gravatar katie - November 6, 2007 - 7:04 AM -

Um, but you just DID admit it...to the whole Intarnets!

I can only sleep on my stomach, with both arms pinned underneath me. If I rolle over onto my back, I wake up.

gravatar srah - November 6, 2007 - 7:12 AM -

Wait, what did I admit? I don't think I was trying to keep anything from my lovely Intarnets.

gravatar katie - November 6, 2007 - 8:56 PM -

You said "there is no one to whom I would want to ADMIT that I was taking fake-sleeping pictures"

I contend that you have now made a mass admission.

gravatar srah - November 6, 2007 - 9:13 PM -

Oh. Well yes, I've admitted it to the Internet. I meant that there's no one down here that I would want to admit that to.
