A Disturbing Question.

There’s more disturbance planned for me tomorrow, and I do so hate going to bed knowing I have to wake up to something which will set off negative reactions. It reminds me of that question which has long intrigued me: how on earth do people on death row go to sleep the night before they’re due to be executed?

I mean, this is it, isn’t it? You know that this is the last time you will ever have the expectation of another tomorrow. Wouldn’t you want to avoid the fact by not going to sleep, or am I just being perverse? And at the very least, wouldn’t you resent wasting most of what’s left of your life sleeping?
