I had dreams last night of the end of the world. I don't recall much, just that at one point the temperature dropped and snow fell in globs the size of cookie dough dropped on a freshly pre-greased baking sheet. And then someone screamed something about the apocalypse so that's when I figured the world must be ending.
Upon partly waking an odd thought occurred to me. Could it be possible to sleep through the end of the world?
Think about it. Going to sleep, snug in your duvet, and waking up to complete and absolute destruction. Or nothing. Floating in space, like the ivory tower in the Neverending Story. I think I might be inclined to roll over and go back to sleep.
I might actually do that now.
