How is it possible that my dad can lay down, fall asleep and be snoring like ill-lubed chainsaw only a minute later? And how am I supposed to fall asleep amidst all this? It's a race of time and I can't win. No matter how hard I try, he always falls asleep first. Tomorrow I will skip brushing my teeth and get a headstart on the family choir. And how in the world can my mum fall asleep? She's only inches away from him.
