Ok here’s the deal. Kesler and I started another challenge here at Casa M. (We decided to create a log so that others around us could what it was like) So here we go… We combined the ever so popular No-Walk-A-Thon with a Stay-A-Wake challenge. Basically, we sat on the couch for 24 hours without moving, while being awake for 40 straight hours.
This experiment was torture. No seriously, as an afterthought, I realized that having someone sit in one place and forcing them to stay awake is actually a very powerful torture tool still practiced today. In other words it was mentally and physically painful. So sorry if I say something offensive.
12:55 am (on Day 2)
O.K. got our snacks, pops and energy drinks, so let’s get this going. Even though I personally feel like this will be a cakewalk I’m prepared for whatever happens. I mean come on I know a lot of people who spend most of their time just sitting around for extended periods of time. (P.S. This was a lazy person joke not a Christopher Reeves joke.)
Huh, this was more difficult than I anticipated. As I sit here I feel like my A.D.D. has just kicked me in the chicken tenders. I’m so tired. In fact I would bet that the only movement I have is in my left pinkie. Kesler is starting to giggle, and he doesn’t appear fazed by the lack of sleep but it has only just started.
I finally caught my second wind thanks to the abundance of coffee and donuts and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m pretty sure that my mind is screwing with me. I thought I saw someone walk through our backyard but when we sent someone out there they were gone. Kesler said that the “worst part of this whole thing is not being able to go outside”. I would agree, it is a beautiful day out and the only thing I can do is just sit here and watch it.
I SAW HIM AGAIN!! There is someone in our FREAKIN backyard!
For some reason only I can see him but I’m not the only one affected by the sleep deprivation. Kesler keeps trying to tell me something but keeps losing his train of thought, he just said, “There are three people that I wouldn’t want to fight. Jesus ,Chuck Norris… “ then he just sat there and zoned out at the tv.
“… and Matt Roberts.” It took Kesler three minutes, but he finally finished his sentence. I should have interrupted him sooner but I was so afraid of the person in the backyard that my mind was elsewhere.
Huh… Kesler just noticed that he is wearing his boxers backwards, if that’s even possible.
We just watched Rambo and I almost fell asleep, I have no idea how that’s even possible (so much blood). Kesler keeps claiming that he just licked his elbow but come on, there’s no way he was close. This was a bad idea… Almost there.
Two hours left, and we are physically exhausted. We just started playing the “Marco Polo” game to stay awake but that got boring so we started singing our favorite ABBA songs instead.
I’m not going to lie, the tensions around here are getting pretty intense. He just told me that “The Broncos could be the worst team in the NFL” I was caught off guard so just yelled back “oh yeah, Well you can’t read!!”…then came the awkward ten minutes of silence. We were both pretty hurt by those comments.
… Uh we just de… crap. I forgot what I was gonna said..?
