Suddenly it seems that all my friends who are using their Facebook status updates to count down to something (be it a holiday, the arrival of a new puppy or seeing their other half again) are using the arbitrary unit of ‘sleep’ instead of the more traditional ‘day’ or ‘hour’.
What happens if, like me, you take the occasional nap in the evening? Or if you press the snooze button a couple of times in the morning?1 Does that count as two of these ‘sleeps’? Does time move quicker? No.
It’s not cute. It’s not clever. It’s wrong. Stop it.
1 I’m considering purchasing a SnūzNLūz alarm clock to help me stop doing this.
