For the past week, I've had to awaken at 5:00 AM to be at work by 7:00 AM. If I lived anywhere else other than Los Angeles, I could drive 32 miles in LESS THAN an hour!! But oftentimes, not here in sunny L.A!!! Even at that ridiculous hour I sometimes ran into traffic. Admittedly, not the kind of traffic I encountered when driving back from the gig around the 5 PM-6 PM hour! Goodness gracious! It was always bumper-to-bumper at that time! And, on the way back, I always, always, always felt soooo sleepy. I mean, I had to lower the windows to let the cool wind hit me. And turn up the music to ear-splitting decibels! Truth be told, neither of those things helped! The only thing that saved me from falling asleep was talking on the phone. So, yes, I talked while driving so I wouldn't SLEEP WHILE DRIVING!!!! And, today -- now that the gig is over -- I slept like a baby! 'Til almost NOON!!!
