A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

4:17 am and the clock goes tick-tick-tick Musings

So there I am awake. Thinking.

I think we’ve done the super-powers thing, but, I thought, there must be some left, something overlooked.

Then it came to me.

What would it be like to be a person that didn’t age when he slept? What if when you slept nothing happened? Times passed for everyone else, but not you.

Well you’d be about 1/3 younger based on an 8 hour sleep. Imagine being 24 and looking 16, that would be awkward at bars right? You’d be 24 according to you birth certificate.

At 60 you’d look 40.

What if you went to bed drunk? Or having had a drink, you’d still wake up drunk, after all nothing happens when you’re asleep, you’d have alcohol in your system for hours.

That’s an unpleasant though really. You’d probably have to give up drinking.

Same with going to bed with a full stomach. When would you be hungry next?

Then it came to me.

What would it be like to be a person that only aged when he slept?

Can you imagine looking 8 when you’re supposed to be 24?

What scenes getting into a bar then.
