Oh god I have a three month old. I may have to re-vote.

At this point though I have given up trying to fight for my old life back so I don't miss the sleep as much anymore.

Re: sleeping vs. eating

Here's the ultimate hypothetical.


You're trapped in prison, and there's no possibility for you to eat or sleep. It's been a week since you're last meal, and you haven't slept for days. You're then presented with two doors.

Behind the first door lies a king sized perfect bed with a down comforter. The room is filled with a surreal ambiance that causes you to drift off by the very thought of entering the room. You're told that upon choosing this door, you will be granted a full nights rest and then released from prison after you wake. You may have an empty stomach, but you'll finally get some much needed rest.

Then there lies the second door. Your told that the room behind this door is filled with every imaginable food you can think of. Everything from mashed potatoes to 10oz filets cooked to perfection. There are succulent fruits and rich desserts. The mouthwatering shmorgusboard dances in your brain as thoughts of gluttony cascade across your hypothalamus. It will truly be a day in ecstasy, albeit a tired one. Upon completion of you're feast, you will have to wait another 12 hours in prison without sleeping before being released.


If you have to choose a door....which one do you choose?

You get used to it. However, each Sunday morning, part of me longs for the days where I could stay in bed until 11. Now, sleeping in consist of my wife using the baby to wake me up no later than 8am.

I choose "A" hands down and don't look back. You can eat upon your release, when your body is rested and can enjoy eating again.

Re: sleeping vs. eating

Sleep is only satisfying if I get enough of it. Which isn't often. It feels nice to lay down in bed, but way too often I have to get up before I'm ready. And that's painful.

I'll take eating any day. At work, I look forward to lunch. On my ride home, I think about what I'm going to have for dinner. On Friday nights, I bust out of work all excited for my routine Friday Philly cheesesteak with fried onions and mushrooms.

I never get excited about taking a nap.

No way dude, if I'm that hungry there's no way I can fall asleep. If I miss a meal I'm crabby as hell. If I miss a good night's sleep, well that's just normal life!

I hate naps. I always feel worse afterward. It also makes it harder for me to fall asleep at night.

Re: sleeping vs. eating

Very, very tough one. But since I was working until 3:45 am this morning and got back into the office at 7:30 am, I'm going to have to go with sleep. I feel like I'm high off my ass right now.

Re: sleeping vs. eating

Are we talking about eating at a first rate Vietnamese or French restaurant or like a ham sandwich?

I can assure you that there are no first rate Vietnamese restaurants in Lancaster. You should probably stick to sleeping and Burger King Dmek.

I live to eat good food. Sleep just gets me ready for breakfast.
