Bedtime Rituals

What does bedtime look like at your house?

Bedtime is usually between 11pm and midnight in my place. My parents will try and stay up till midnight if they can and find some program on tv that they can watch until sleep is too hard to fight against. Mom wakes up by 6 am so she doesn’t plan to stay up beyond midnight. Dad too wake up by 6:30 am or 7 so he too sleeps by 11.

We all have our little routines; mom makes sure everything in the kitchen is closed or in the fridge or in the cupboards before she switches off the lights. Dad gets his thick sheets and special mattress which is good for his back and locks the door to the balcony before he turns in. I make sure that I take a leak and get my bottle of water filled from the kitchen before I retire back to my room.

I always like to watch some tv show or movie before I go to sleep. When I do an evening shift – like a 5:30 pm to 2:30 am or a 6:30 pm to 3:30 am – then after I reach home and get into my room, change my clothes (or rather, strip naked as I sleep in the nude) and get in between the sheets, I usually like to watch a couple of episode of a comedy show. Frasier is what I am watch now and as I am going to be done soon, I will probably watch Friends or Corner Gas next. And then it’s off to sleep!
