It was a science exam and we had page after page after page of multiple choice questions. It was time for the exam to be over, but I found myself pleading with the professor for extended time. It turned out the people in the second room (right next to our room) were totally rowdy and had made it hard for me to concentrate. I was moved to another room with the professor looking on as I frantically tried to finish the exam. I remember one particular question that troubled me about breeds of dogs, certain kinds of dog beds, and fabric softeners. The data for answering the question covered four pages, front and back, and I found myself shuffling those pages over and over in an attempt to finish the exam.
And then I found a packet of twenty-five questions that I hadn't even started. I finally finished and turned in the exam pages, only to discover that I had left grandson Jack in the first exam room. I took off to find him!
And that's when I rolled over, looked at the window, and saw daylight around the edges of the blinds. I recently returned from a trip to Italy. After five days of waking up in the early morning hours and being unable to go back to sleep, I had finally managed to sleep through the night. Thanks, exam nightmare for troubling my sleep and keeping me busily engaged until daybreak!
