“The neurotic who learns to laugh at himself may be on the way to self-management, perhaps to a cure.”
- Gordon W. Allport
Sleep is a fundamental need for most biological organisms. It can be observed in all mammals and birds as well as in most reptiles, amphibians, fish, and insects.

One day there was a beer cart girl sitting in her beer cart beside the fifth tee box. As she counted her tips, she wondered why she couldn’t get where she wanted to in life.
While meditating on this complex question, two middle-aged men pulled up in their golf cart. They stopped, each grabbed a club, and walked onto the tee box. One man wore a white flat cap with a red pompom on top; a red, green, and grey argyle sweater; white pants and shoes; and argyle socks pulled up to his knees. The other man had an Old Milwaukee in his hand and was wearing a stained white t-shirt, grey sweat shorts, and flip flops.
