But that isn't what's kept me up at night.
Of course, politics has kept me up. But I don't want to get into that.
So I asked my mother, a professional hypochondriac and a semi-pro insomniac for some sleep tips.
She wrote an article that was published in the "Funny Women" column at The Rumpus under the title: "Sleep Tips by a 90-Year-Old Insomniac." So there.
I'm proud of her. It's a charming piece. And the editor at The Rumpus was really supportive (I know because I served as liaison for the editing process since my 90-year-old mother isn't familiar with Google Drive, where the editor had posted changes to the article).
The thought of her getting published when I haven't written a humor piece in a while isn't what's keeping me up. Honest.
But I am publishing a blog post about her article and including her clip on my list because she doesn't have a website of her own, and it seemed like the best way to track her humor pieces, too. She's already at work on another piece.
