Oh no, David. How could you? You had one job, and you failed. How are you going to fall asleep when your best friend tries to call, after you said twice you wanted to FaceTime with her?
Let’s review what might have led to this debacle and how we can avoid missing FaceTime calls in the future.
Timing. When I was all set and ready to video chat my friend, it was ten after 10 pm. It was ten after 11 where she resides. 🤦🏾♂️ I’m not as young as I used to be. A couple of years ago I might have been able to stay up all night long on weekdays. But I have a full time job now. Even though I work a better position then I was previously, I’m still on my feet all the time. Let’s not forget that I often work past my schedule to help out when they’re short staffed. Our bodies need rest. The idea time to have long conversations on the phone should probably be before 10 pm on a workday.
Laying in bed. There is no magic quite like that of a queen sized bed. Those things are so pleasantly comfy that they will have you slumbering like a newborn during a tornado drill. Next time I’ll have to take my upcoming FaceTime appointments to the floor, not even laying down because oddly enough I go to dreamland laid out like a dog on a carpet floor. It’s comfy. I’ll have to sit up.
Lighting I had my ceiling light offs, and for a while I had only the glow of the lamp on my desk. The fan light slightly over my bed feels like the sun wherever I regularly FaceTime my friend. The high beam keeps my eyes wide open. It may be best for you yourself to keep your brightest lights on.
To my readers, try to avoid what I did. When arranging to hit someone up like your best friend or significant other, please make sure the timing is right; that you’re comfy but not too comfy; and that you have your lights on.
