I lay down around 22:00 and slept about an hour. I was awakened by an extremely unpleasant dream. It woke me in such a bad humor that I can't get back to sleep.
"White night" is the phrase that describes what is going on. I have had plenty of white nights in the past, sometimes due to nerves, to worries that will not abate, even to indigestion, but this is the first I have lost to simple irritation.I'm listening to Chicago Days/Hoboken Nights by Daniel Pinkwater. It is interesting but I don't think I'll order any more.
