You are getting sleepy. Your eyelids are getting heavy. You are staring into a swirling vortex of gold and poorly painted flower-like object things. You realize that I am beautiful and artlike. You will display me prominently in your home. Hey wait! No! Not back in the basement on the shelf of things you despise but feel too guilty to get rid of!
