Sleeping with one eye open

Filed under: Ecuador — Tags: , , , — lstollin @ 5:46 am

I must have slept last night with my right eyelid hanging open. Today it feels like the Atacama in there. In my youth, I took my eyelids for granted as tight, elastic covers with an impervious, ziplock seal, but they seem to have degraded into something more akin to the flaps of a weathered pup tent, dependent more on gravity than anything else to stay closed, and hopeless at providing a decent seal from the elements. Maybe this is why I seem to be better at falling asleep sitting in a meeting than I am when horizontal in bed.

I won’t go into all the other out-of-warranty body parts that aren’t performing at their previous level.
