Everyone Gets Tired Sometimes

And I'll be sure to snap your picture when you fall asleep... especially on a road trip.

This is Micah. He is using the Slump method. It's when you just relax where you're sitting and don't even bother with the head nods. It's a good way to prevent the Open Mouth side effect though you may have Stiff Neck syndrome later.

Holly used the I'm Going to Get Comfy and Sleep method. This method requires a pillow and whatever else you can put between you and the hard wall of the vehicle. This method does have its risks. Notice the slightly parted mouth but her neck muscles will probably remain unknotted.

Dave goes for the Relaxing at the Beach method. This requires a seat in front of you to either prop your legs against or over. The Slump and Slide move keeps you from the Open Mouth and Snoring risks. Although I could say he was snoring and he couldn't prove otherwise since he and all the other witnesses were sleeping at the time...

My Dad managed to pull off the I'm Really Awake but Resting my Eyes look. He was definitely out though. It's a good thing he didn't use the Head Back method; he would definitely have the Snoring effect and startle himself awake.
And since I'm a good sport... I took a picture of myself sleeping.

It took me a few tries since I couldn't stop laughing and then I woke up everyone else with my hysterics.

But I was determined. Pretty good, huh? It's the I Don't Have Anywhere to Lay my Head but Back method. Open Mouth is a given with this particular sleep position. Micah told me the only thing missing with my picture was some drool. I wish I had thought of that.
Or maybe I should be mad at Micah for insinuating that I drool...

VERY nice. I have seen your dad do the "I am still awake but resting my eyes" sleep on many occasion. I laughed sooo hard reading this

I can't sleep anywhere but in my bed.

I have so many of these of Matt. He always falls asleep in the car. My favorite is when he's in the passenger seat and slowly his body starts to lean closer and closer to the driver (me) until I have to elbow him in the head so I don't have an accident.

If I'm not driving, it's tough for me to stay awake in the car. But I try, really I do, because not only do I want the stiff neck issues it's that weird sensation of waking up someplace you weren't before that doesn't sit well with me.

How very funny! And what an excellent synopsis of the choices available for travel sleep! BTW, my dad used to fall asleep in church on Sundays at Mass and he would SNORE and I mean SNORE! It was very humbling!

However, your post gives it a lot of class! LOL!
