My Brain Won’t Let Me Sleep

I’m a huge fan of sleep. It’s one of my favorite things in the world. You know, after my husband, daughters, Doctor Who (I’m loving Capaldi’s outfit), rainbow sprinkles, and crispy bacon.

But some nights I can’t go to sleep. Actually, it’s more like my brain won’t LET me sleep. That’s right. It keeps talking. And talking. And talking. To itself.

Just like this:

I wonder who Skye’s parents really are. How important were they to have S.H.I.E.L.D. protect her all this time?

Boy, you got my heartbeat runnin’ away

It’s crazy what they did to Agent Coulson. I totally thought they were going to make his character on S.H.I.E.L.D. a clone or a robot version of the Coulson from The Avengers.

Beating like a drum and it’s coming your way

I need to try making that Cookie Crisp cereal I saw online. It didn’t seem too difficult.

Can’t you hear that boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass? You got that super bass

I wonder what it’s like to work on After Hours. I think it would be really tough but fun at the same time.

Boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass, Yeah, that’s the super bass

I need to pick up dried basil from Target and get some cooking spray from Costco.

Boy, you got my heartbeat runnin’ away

Oooh, I’ve got a dentist appointment next week. I better remember to floss really well.

Beating like a drum and it’s coming your way

I wonder what my husband and I should do for our anniversary this year. Ten years. Yeesh. Where has the time gone? Hmmm… we’ll probably just end up ordering takeout and watching something on Netflix.

Can’t you hear that boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass? You got that super bass

Should I get him a gift? I don’t really have money right now.

Boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass, Yeah, that’s the super bass

Maybe I can bake him a batch of cookies. Does that count as a gift?

Boy, you got my heartbeat runnin’ away

Being broke sucks.

Beating like a drum and it’s coming your way

SHUT UP BRAIN! WHY ARE YOU SINGING A NICKI MINAJ SONG!

Can’t you hear that boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass? You got that super bass  

YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW ALL THE WORDS! JUST THE CHORUS!

Boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass, Yeah, that’s the super bass

Seriously, stop it. I know JGL was lip syncing to it but you need to sleep. Got it?

Yeah, okay. I’ll stop. You can go to sleep.

Thank you.

*Alarm goes off*

Awww dammit.

    So I think Skye is an alien. And I’m also glad that I don’t know the song that was in your head. I think that song in particular whatever it is probably causes all insomnia.

      Oooh, I like that ‘Skye is an alien’ theory. In that universe, it could totally work.
      And yeah, it’s probably best that you don’t know that song. :)
