|Lora at 4 Years Old|
When my sister was very young, she was a great napper. She slept long and deep. Trouble was, if she had a good afternoon nap, she couldn't go back to sleep at night until very late.
Mom's remedy for this problem was to try to keep her from napping.
One day, while taking a road trip, we all were trying to keep Lora awake. Mom glanced in the rearview mirror and saw that Lora's eyes were closed.
"Lora Jean, you better not be taking a nap."
"I'm not, my sister replied in a montone, "I'm just checking my eyelids for cracks."
I still laugh when I recall her witty reply to this day.
