I have to:
change out of dayclothes into nightclothes
remove glasses and all jewelry
take my pills
give jackson his pills
brush my teeth
check to see that there is coffee for morning
pee one last time to forestall getting up in the middle of the night
climb up to bed
check the alarm clock that it will ring at a reasonable hour
fluff the pillow
realign the blankets so that they will cover me head to toe
can you blame me for falling asleep in my chair? once the decision to go to bed is made, the way is strewn with so many obstacles its amazing that I ever make it up there.
time to go to bed.
look at that list.
