Wasted time

A friend of mine says that sleeping is a waste of time. She says that time you spend sleeping is time lost, and that you never get that time back. Firstly ‒ Duh! Secondly, how can it be a waste of time if your body is healing, regenerating, and relaxing? Thirdly, when else do you get to dream? I know some of you said you don’t dream, or don’t remember your dreams, and some dreams are bad dreams, but some dreams are good dreams. In the words of Ralph Wiggum (from the Simpsons) “Oh boy sleep. That’s where I’m a Viking!”

I find the moments just before wakefulness to be among the most pleasant, specially if it is cold out. Your body is still asleep, and warm, but your mind is just starting to wake up.

I don’t consider sleep a waste of time, but I do consider ironing a waste of time. Your clothes do look much better on you when they are ironed, there is no question about that, but soon, they get all wrinkly again. What’s the point of doing something that will get undone and need to be redone soon?

If they can send a man to the Moon, and a car to Mars to collect Mars rocks, why can’t they create linen that is wrinkle-proof?

What do you consider to be a waste of time?

Well, a lot of things are a waste of time... although reading your blog definitely isn't one of them. *smiling*
Hey, if you could learn to sleepwalk and iron at the same time, you'd have the best of both worlds! *winking*

Spectator sports...seems most of the time, the spectators are the ones that need the most exercise.

Any activity that does not challenge body, mind or spirit.

Most things done to excess.

Just the thought of an old American farmer. lol

Yeah I reckon that ironing clothes is a bugger but the worst waste of time is havin to wait in supermarket lines.

Thankyou. I certainly appreciate that compliment.
Hugs and kisses

LOL. I didn't think about that. You are quite right.
Moderation in all things, including moderation. ha ha.

Very true. Supermarket lines are annoying.

Tee hee

I absolutely have to agree with that. It is a pity that some of us only find our "real" selves, or really only begin to "be" our true selves too late. What a waste of time.

However, it is never too late to begin.

Race you...
