I slept off

I must have been 16 or so and it was the advent of free midnight calls. We’d stay up chatting all night; I wonder what we were talking about for that long and it’s funny there was never a dull moment. Well, until she slept off on me.

I couldn’t understand it. I was offended.  How could you sleep off on another person? It could mean a lot of things: I was boring, she was uninterested, she was tired (why would she be tired, I mean it was only 2am).

Several years after that, I’ve slept off on some conversations, most recently, yesterday. In a bid not to come off as rude or insensitive, you engage in a war against sleep. I guess sometimes, it takes making the same mistake for you to realise that people are allowed to make mistakes.

I still think it’s rude to sleep off on someone but at least now I know better than to judge.

Food for thought:

We find it more difficult to forgive mistakes that we think we are not prone to make.

Life nugget:

Forgive even though it doesn’t always come easily. It’s a commandment.
