There’s truth in jest. I can’t get by on less than 9 hrs sleep a night.
This is a liability — wellnigh a disability, in my opinion.
When M. Thatcher came to power & we heard that she copes with 4-5 hrs a
night, I was green with envy. Tried to emulate but couldn’t. A medical man
once told me that there is an upside: apparently I should live to be about
120, barring accidents or lethally enraged readers.
