Very High Dollar (subtitle: Hey, A Girl's Gotta Do What A Girl's Gotta Do)

I left work for a while today to buy some things I need for a baby shower I'm hosting on Saturday. After I was finished with my errand I was stopped at a traffic light and almost nodded off -- don't know if it is the heat or the pregnancy (ha ha ha -- just seeing if you were paying attention) or the fact THAT I HAVE NOT HAD A DECENT NIGHT'S SLEEP IN TWO AND A HALF YEARS, AVERY KATHARINE.

Anyway, I pulled into an office parking lot near where I work, cracked the windows, reclined the seat, turned the car off and apparently, promptly fell asleep.

About half an hour later, I was awakened by a very polite maintenance person who was standing back from the window saying, "ma'am? ma'am? I need to get into that gate you're parked near and I was afraid the noise would wake you up and you'd get scared." He went on to say that he noticed the baby car seat in the back and because he has young kids, he knows how important the power naps are and that it looked like I was sleeping pretty soundly.

His simple act of kindness really made my day. (Well, that and the power nap.)

Are you sure you were tired and not "sleeping it off". Do we need to stage an intervention at the shower?
