I couldn’t sleep the other night. It has been happening to me with some increasing frequency. But instead of being a couch zombie or runinator – two bad extremes- I have looked to do things. Get some tedious things done. I mean really tedious.
What did I do tonight? I disentagled cords. Electronic cords. Earphones. If it had a cord, it needed disentangling.
I had a heavy work backback filled with a mesh of cords that I was having a hard time tearing apart. Thus, at midnight I set about throwing them on the ground and taking then apart. Entangled they were useless. I was seeking usefulness at midnight. I’m not too sure that’s what happens at midnight.
What I will tell you is this. I disentagled them all. I didn’t feel all that accomplished. Further, I was still awake. Very low return on investment in this endeavor.
