I read in the newspaper about the “First Spanish Siesta” contest in Madrid. There was an actual sleep championship – how would you like to enter that competition? The winner was a 62 year old Ecuadorean man who ignored the uproar of a load Madrid shopping center and snored at 70 decibels – roughly the equivalent of someone talking very loudly. (Does it sound like your husband might qualify?)
The aim of this funny contest was to promote a revival of the timeless custom of an afternoon siesta in Spain. Here’s my baby Lucy sleeping through her feeding. Maybe she could enter a baby siesta contest?
