Q: When was the last time you stayed awake for 24 hours?
A: A Lock In at my elementary school (as a reward for reading lots of books). watched a movie about a witch and some pancakes. we kept looking at our clocks and saying, “wow! it’s 4 am!” like it was magical hour and the very air we breathed had become magical. the next day i slept through my alarm (first and only time that’s ever happened) and had to play in a baseball game. I wasn’t in fighting form and my ma was mad at me for staying up all night. i kept falling asleep in the car on the way there.
Remember: it’s a marathon. Pace baby, pace Keep the longview. we have to have a before and after pic. wear the same clothes. same positions in the photo. i might break down in hysterical laughter. only i won’t be laughing. I’ll be gasping for air. magical air. hope someone knows CPR.”
