If your spouse complains about your constant snoring, tell her to “stick it” or you can be more hospitable by informing her that there’s big bucks for snoring in Spain.
Of course she may very well tell you to just pack up and go there….but what the hell….it might be worth the bucks.
I was unable to access the entire web site to determine exactly what the prizes are, but any reward for snoring is ok with me.
This takes place in Spain at the annual National Siesta Championships. (marking this on my calendar of events for next year)
The best nappers are invited to revive the tradition of lunchtime snoozing.
Which is what we need here in the United States. I’m all for lunchtime snoozing. However, many of the places I was employed at seemed, for some reason, to frown upon it. I think the worst flack I got from taking a nap at lunchtime was when I was guarding a bank.
Geez……so I fell asleep for a few minutes…big deal. It’s not like a bunch of bank robbers took advantage of my nap……at least I don’t think they did…….I was asleep at the time the cops arrived.
Anyhow, in Spain the competitors are monitored during a 20 minute nap. They lie on a couch with pulse monitors attached and are given points for everything from actually sleeping and snoring, and receive an additional plus for unusual pajamas.
That last one I would score big on. Bunny slippers and bunny PJ’s with a big white tail. Hey…I like rabbits.
I get quite a bit of flack at home because I tend to snore a lot. I swear my other half stays awake at night just to keep track of my snoring activity. I counter her with the fact that she sleeps with her mouth wide open allowing stray bugs a warm sanctuary. (I carry my camera cell phone to bed with me at night in an attempt to capture one of these bugs and totally freak her out)
I’ve also explained to her on many occasions that I snore due to a deviated septum, but so far she hasn’t bought it. The deviated part yes, but the septum part no.
So, my only recourse is to book a trip to Spain next year and prove to her that I can walk away a winner in that snoring competition.
In the meantime…………….
Whenever she, or any of you other guys spouses complain about your snoring, tell them you’re rehearsing for the competition in Spain next year.
