King Richard, Duke of Gloucester: A horse, a horse! My kingdom for a horse!*
Alex, multiple pets household dweller: Some sleep, some sleep! My kingdom for some sleep!**
I’m insomniac and it doesn’t help that there’s a dog or a cat awake in my house at any given time of the day or night. They all seem to have different schedules and my sleep is not included in any of them.
Last night, Brian got bored so he rummaged in his garden treasury and brought an ancient, mainly decomposed, smelly object (his chewable treat? a part of a dinosaur’s bone? a piece of wood from Noah’s ark?)
Then he went on to rest in Lily’s bed and started chewing the wall. As you do at three o’clock in the morning.
I’m sure in a few years I’ll miss all his funny ways. And, after all, who needs sleep anyway.
*he didn’t really say that (the quote is from ‘Richard III’, act V, scene IV)
**I don’t really have any kingdom to trade with
