I’ve always wonder where this term came from. I’ve been observing my cat and it seemed my pet sleep longer than the term implies. Maybe, the feline is always full so it does not need to wake all too often.
I let the animal stay in its spot and blog on.
Speaking of napping, I just have this deja vu moment about an hour and a half earlier. It’s like a replay of what had happened early this morning.
I held the mouse and stared at the monitor. I clicked the sites I wished to view. Due to the climate (the internet providers often blame the weather for bad connection) that was partly cloudy and partly sunny, I watched that revolving icon that serves as indicator that the system is either loading or searching.
I looked at the digital clock at the lowest part of the monitor and it showed 2:11 PM. I waited for the computer monitor to come alive with the chosen sites on screen.
I removed my glasses and closed my eyes for a while. A short blink, I guess.
When I opened my eyes, the indicator kept on moving like the last time I saw it. Darn it, I swore.
Looking at the digital clock once more, I was surprised to see the time was 2:20 PM. Where did time go?
For nine minutes, I lost all consciousness of time, like a blank journey into the unknown. I was at the same spot like a statue for a while.
Now, I understand what a catnap is. 😀
