Sleep

So, did you guys hear the latest? Apparently Steve fell asleep in computer class. That’s like totally unheard of since he practically teaches the class himself!

Taylor! How do you think he feels about it? You don’t need to go tell the whole school.

What? It’s not like every other kid in school isn’t falling asleep all the time. But for Steve to do it in computer lab, well like that’s weird! I’m worried about him.

You’re worried about someone besides you? Talk about weird.

What’s weird is that you guys get enough sleep. Aren’t you tired?
