guilty pleasures

GUILTY PLEASURES

Today it was sleep.

~S~ called me. I laughed when I realise how much I am a creature of habit. I always sit in front of the PC when I am waiting for her to call. And then when she does call I always say exactly the same thing to her, every single morning, and always with the biggest smile on my face. It isn't something I'd even realised that I did until this morning.

As I'm talking to her, I get up from the PC and wander through to the lounge to settle down on the couch while we chat. We chat for a little while. Okay then, make that more like an hour. And I look at the clock and realise that she will have to go soon to get just a bit more sleep before she gets up for work.

So I get up from the couch and wander upstairs, lie down on my bed and imagine I am lying next to her. Eventually we say our goodbyes.

And then I'm asleep, with her. In a place that knows no name. A place of our own creation.

When I finally waken, with a start, it's 12.30pm and I've been lost in slumber for 2 hours.

What a deliciously guilty pleasure.

What a truly GREAT guilty pleasure though! The only other guilty pleasure that could top that one would be for her to be there and you take a nap in the middle of the morning with her :)

What she neglected to tell any of you is that she's a blanket hog! :oP

Of course the quickest cure for that would be to put ice cold body parts against her warm ones. *laughs*
