A waitress friend of mine recently told me about a waitress friend of hers who everyday “takes a nap”. Now, I never take naps. But I often fall asleep while reading—which is very different from deliberately taking a nap! I am far more like my cats Sweetpea and Oscar than like my waitress friend once removed. These cats never take naps; they merely fall asleep. They fall asleep wherever and whenever they choose (which, incidentally, is most of the time!) Thus these cats are true sages.
