Even though dozing in the middle of stuff happening is considered a domain of old folks and rather stereo-typically called having a senior moment, all of u have been in that meeting or that town hall where we can’t seem to stop ourselves nodding off.
Why am I talking about senior moments here, you ask?
Kanika & I found a recent news item (& I kid you not) about the National Sleepyhead day celebrations in Finland!
The festival had origins in the myth of Seven Sleepers of Ephesus in religion where a group of young men hide inside a cave to escape religious persecution and emerge 300 years later. Of late, of course, this has evolved into a day of informal celebrations and family fun where the last sleeping member of the family is carried out to the nearest water body (preferably a lake) and dunked in (while still sleeping).
