When I am coming back from work, tired from the day’s work, or when I wake up all groggy from having slept late previous night; the best thing is catching some winks. Years ago when I had started working in shifts, it would be common for me to fall asleep in the company bus. My commute takes around an hour, enough time to doze off.
It is an entirely different matter, that I would fall asleep within few minutes. Sleeping in buses has always felt so comfortable. So comfortable that I would sleep long post my stop and wake up in a further part of the city. One particular night I woke up at almost the last stop of the route, and had to walk for half an hour before I could get an auto to reach home.
I get these winks more often now, and I am not one to complain it 😀
A mini post, because I am just too tired right now.

🙂 Welcome to my world people usually say they cant sleep on a flight but i have no such problem .. the moment plane starts its journey I am zzzzzzzzzzzzz’ing 🙂
I have seen commuters who sleep in trains/buses and who promptly get up at their stops and alight. I guess by now you are doing that? 😀
I’m a bit short of these winks, now that this blog challenge is also underway 😀 I’ve always been unable to really sleep while travelling, unless I SO tired! G’nite 🙂
I used to envy people who could fall asleep easily in crowded, humid buses! I also had a one hour commute each way to and from college so it would have been nice if I could have done the same!! 😀
I watch people who sleep.. as for me, I can sleep only on a bed.. so sitting and sleeping in a bus.. may be I’ve never been that tired, oh! I been jealous of a few classmates of mine who could sit and sleep in class.. 🙂 sleep well, stretched out on your bed.. catch some more winks
Cool to see you back. Travelling is the best way to observe and write:)
I used to fall asleep in the bus too… everyday.. morning and evening! 😀
After I stopped using the company bus and started going to work in BMTC, the conductor used to wake up sometimes, telling me my stop had arrived! heh! 😀
