Test Time

Deanna was asleep on top of her desk when her mom came in to check on her.  Her mom gently touched her shoulder and whispered, “Honey, you need to go to bed and get some real sleep.”

Deanna stirred and slowly raised her head, “I can’t believe I fell asleep.  I really need to study for this test.”

“You will not do any good on it if you don’t get your rest though.  Get some sleep and maybe get up a half an hour early and revisit it with a refreshed mind in the morning.”

“You are right Mom; I just know it is going to be an essay test and my dates and facts will need to be there to have it work.”

“You are great with your writing; an essay test should be a breeze for you!  Now get some sleep sunshine.”

“I will, thanks Mom.”
