Our internal e-mail lists have us discussing all kinds of stuff: Asian American identity, representation in the media, the experiences of activism in an academia setting and its progression as we transition to the working, adult world. And sometimes, we talk about sleeping Asians. That’s right, folks: ASIANS. THAT ARE SLEEPING.
Jen: “Asian-Americans slept the best of all, with five of every six saying they got a good night’s sleep at least a few nights a week. They were also less likely than members of other groups to watch television or drink alcohol before going to bed, and less likely to share a bed with a spouse or partner.” A sleep expert is quoted: “what we do in the hour before bedtime is important.” My question: What do Asian Americans do an hour before bed that makes us more likely to sleep well?
Efren: They probably have sex with their partner, and then kick them out of bed.
Ernie: Study for their LSATs. THANK YOU FOLKS I’LL BE HERE ALL WEEK
So, what do you do the hour before you go to bed? I play forty games of Bejeweled Blitz in a row, but hey, I’m a fucking rebel.
