Sex, Food, or Sleep?

October 25, 2017

Mary and I were working the other night on Mike's version of the story in our next book to follow Happily Ever After Everyone Else in our She Said He Said book series. We were checking back on a part of the story for comparison purposes when I happened to notice that we referenced the need for sleep a few times. I mentioned it to Mary and we chuckled. Perhaps this was an unconscious need of ours coming out through our books and being spoken to the universe! Mary then wondered how often it was mentioned in our first book so I stated that we could just find out right then and there! Why not, right? So we checked three different words or forms of them: sleep, eat, and sex. For those of you who already read the book, which one do you think came up the most in our story? Mary and I couldn't wait to see! So here are the results for each word or phrase:

sleep . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 30 times

nap . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 28 times

food or eat . . . . . . . . . . both 28 times each

sex . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 20 times

backseat pleasures . . . 2 times

make love . . . . . . . . . . . 1 time

So, putting it together, what does it mean for those of us in the sandwich generation or older? The grand total for sleep, as announced to the universe in our book, was 58 times, followed by eating 56 times, and lastly, sex 23 times. That's the results for Mary and me anyway. The mention of sleep and food was more than double that for sex. I guess Mary and I will have to work on the latter with our husbands, but first we'll need a snack and some sleep!
