My loss of sleep brought to mind a funny story my dad tells of a time he went fishing....
He had been working the night shift at the time & was finding it difficult to squeeze any daylight hours in for fishing. As it was the peak of trout season, he decided enough was enough & that he would take his rod & reel to work with him one night & go fishing for a while on his way home, after work, in the early morning. That's just what he did, too.
Well, as any of you who've ever worked the night shift know, it can make you feel like a zombie - sleeping in the daylight hours, never seeing the sun. But on this particular day dad stopped off at a favorite little stream of his that happens to run through a cow pasture. Being tired from the full night of work, he sat down with his back against a tree by the stream to fish a small pool that was known to hold many trout.
As things will go, he nodded off to sleep - for how long he's not sure. When suddenly he became conscience of something very warm & wet against his cheek. He opened his eyes to see that he was, literally, nose to nose with a full grown bull. He screamed, the bull screamed, & both of them took off in opposite directions until they realized what had happened, haha!!!
Just imagine waking up to this right in your face:
So, by all means nap along a trout stream. It can be some of the best napping you'll ever do. Just be careful where & which stream you choose to nap beside or you could wake up face to face to a cow!!!
