I know I had been depraved of sleep since over a week, as I usually ended up working till 4am and then woke up by the noise at 7, still trying to sleep but not able to do so. But this was not the first time it was happening with me, and I’m quite used to it.
But what happened yesterday night was really a first time for me. I had been working away at my computer as usual. It must’ve been around 1 am, and I was feeling unusually sleepy. I had already washed my face and taken a short walk on the terrace earlier, all to no avail.
And the next thing I knew , I suddenly woke up with a start, after hitting my head on the desk rather violently. It was 5am. I permitted myself a short laugh, and then went back to sleep, in the much more comfortable confines of my bed 😀
