The friend came close and did what I dislike most –Yawn – with his mouth wide open like a hippopotamus.
Seeing my discomfort, he said, “I did not sleep well last night.”
“If you open your mouth too wide, you can dislocate your jaw joint. Normally, you should be able to insert three fingers between your front teeth,” I scared him.
Other friends joined in.
“Honeybees never sleep. Why you complain?” joked one.
“But a snail can sleep for three years,” he shot back.
“The 24-hour accessibility of the Internet has created havoc. My daughter goes to bed after midnight,” lamented a female colleague.
“What is the record for longest period without sleep?” asked one.
“I think 18 days. But I had read that the record holder reported hallucinations and blurred vision,” said a self-proclaimed genius.
“Why this discussion on sleep? I feel sleepy,” complained an irritated friend.
“It all started with the yawn of this guy,” I told them, myself yawning.
