Friday Fives

1. What’s the weirdest place you have ever slept?
I’ve slept in a snow cave while a young teenager in Boy Scouts. I’ve also gotten lost in Stuttgart on a bit of a beer-soaked binge and road a train going the wrong way so at the end of the line I got off the train and slept under a bench in a park. Not my proudest moment but I was a young GI having a night on the town.

2. What’s the worst place you ever slept?
An army barracks that is just like you see in the movies – a big huge room of bunk beds and 30 folks all sleeping at the same time. Not a comfy sleep.

3. What/where is the best night sleep you have ever had?
Clean sheet night in my big old bed. It’s quite comfy but I think I may have far too many pillows.

4. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
I’m a morning person. I tend to fade quite early and am known to be in bed by 9:30 or 10 pm.

5. What is one little noise that will always wake you up?
I have a lot of grey noise in my room – a humidifier and an air purifier so I don’t hear lots of things (I have slept through fire alarms.) But in my apartment building, I wake up to footsteps in the wee hours of the night from upstairs. But I usually quickly go back to sleep.

  1. 1) 30feet in the air in a harness on a high ropes course.
    2) In a tent in the middle of a snow storm beside a bunch of other people that were all on the ambulance call and got snowed in with the patient and his buddies waiting for the storm to pass so we could air lift the patient.
    3) In Paris after arriving and having the time change mess everything up I think I slept for 16 hours.
    4) I can adjust with the plan but prefer to be a morning person.
    5) you turn my fan off and I wake up immediately. Otherwise I can sleep through damn near anything.
