Anecdote: Sleep

Type: Anecdote

I was giving a lesson on the theme of 'sleep' to a class of French university technology students. They had to ask each other questions and compete a questionnaire. One of the questions was, "What's the longest time you've ever slept uninterruptedly?"

One of the students asked if he could interview me.

When it came to that question, I replied "36 hours", explaining that many years ago a doctor had prescribed me a tranquilliser, a single pill of which had indeed sent me off for that long.

"Monsieur," said my student, "In France we don't call that person 'doctor' - we call him 'dealer'!"
