How narcoplepsy is ruining my life

It’s not very often that I feel all “I’m so old.” But when they come (like when The Grad told me he was in 5th or 6th grade when Weezer’s Blue Album came out), they sure has hell throw me for a loop.

Take today for instance. After my mid-morning nap (it seems that no matter what time I go to bed my body has decided that 7:30 a.m. is a perfect time to wake up) I came downstairs to forage for food and see if there was a good Austin City Limits on the DVR. There was cold pizza and nothing mood matching in the DVR. So I happened to catch that TCM was playing a hot double feature of “My Fair Lady” and “Harvey.” I have a serious thing for Audrey Hepburn and tall men (ol’ Jimmy Stews was a strapping 6’4″ish), so I snuggled in with a blanket and the Dorothy Parker collection. I made it through one story and most of “My Fair Lady.” That’s when I lost consciousness.

By the time I came to, Jimmy and Harvey were walking off into the black and white sunset and I had lost like three and a half hours of my life. There I was afghan, cat in lap, and head thrown back. The only thing missing was the Mr. Rogersesque cardigan.

If I hadn’t had an awesome makeout dream during my narcoleptic-nap, I’d totally be calling the AARP right now.

    Gee, sorry to hear you are feeling old. Of course, I’ve been feeling old for 20 years now…and that feeling is getting old.

    But, on the bright side, I got curious what were the top albums when I was in 5th grade and googled up a couple lists and figured I would call these the top 5–
    5 – Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme Simon and Garfunkel
    4 – Aftermath The Rolling Stones
    3 – Blonde on Blonde Bob Dylan
    2 – Revolver The Beatles
    1 – Pet Sounds The Beach Boys

    And that is just the mainstreet stuff, I stayed away from the jazz, blues, country, and psychodelic stuff. If I had been more music aware up in the old northwoods of Sconie, I could have grooved to some pretty great music; instead, sadly, it was all pretty much top 40 all the time up there.
