I stumbled upon this old video totally by accident, while posting the last Naps Happen video. I had completely forgotten about it, which amazes me. What could be better?
I think it was Allison at Motherhood WTF (Edit: Nope – it was Kim at Let Me Start By Saying…sorry Kim!) who requested live footage of how naps “happen.” What I am showing you here is a very early sign of what was coming, before the first nap I ever photographed even happened.
Important: The music is not a track I laid on. It was in the room, coming from the keyboard muzak function.
Enjoy. If you can stay awake.
Early in the days of Naps Happen, I posted a bunch of pictures of William out cold in front of what was actually a very loud keyboard playing an endless cycle of muzak songs. The problem is, the picture just can’t convey how deep his sleep was, in the presence of such horribly noisy, cheesy Christmas Carols and renditions of Bryan Adams.
Devoted nap enthusiasts, rejoice, for Cormac has discovered the piano.
It would appear that he does not find it soporific. William, however, is never impervious to the sweet strains of Bryan Adams. They appear to induce slumber in some odd, Pavlovian way.
Cue the bell. Cue the meat powder. If only Pavlov had known about Muzak.
On tour too long...
We have this keyboard that plays one hundred muzak songs, ranging from the Wedding March to “Everything I Do, I Do it For You” (unfortunately). William went through a stage where he would sit for…literally…an hour or more and sway to the music at top volume. Apparently, this stuff could be bottled and sold to insomniacs. Bryan Adams + Muzak = zzzzzzzzzzzz.
