Don't you just love the feeling of finally learning something that you have wanted to know for so long? It's like getting a gift on a random day for no reason at all (as opposed to Christmas or your birthday). It's like finding a buried treasure when you aren't even looking. That's how I feel right now, at this very moment. Why? The answer is here. Read the whole thing if you want, but here is the relevant portion:

In the largest study to date on the health effects of napping, researchers tracked 23,681 healthy Greek adults for an average of about six years. Those who napped at least three times weekly for about half an hour had a 37 percent lower risk of dying from heart attacks or other heart problems than those who did not nap.

All of those afternoons, sitting in my cubicle, head propped up on one hand, pretending to read specs were really to benefit my health. And here we were, thinking the Greeks had ceased to be world leaders back when the Romans took over. Shows what we know!

If you need me, you know where I'll be.
Don't knock too loud...

I liked your post. It was very rewarding. It was so moving that I think I'll go take a nap now--without feeling guilty.

There, now take me off your Lurker list. :-)
