Naps = Life

How about this for your inner Homer Simpson:
The study of more than 23,000 Greek adults -- the biggest and best examination of the subject to date -- found that those who regularly took a midday siesta were more than 30 percent less likely to die of heart disease.

Now that's my kind of science!

With two rambunctious boys and a beloved wife and mother who seeks nothing more than relief from the torpor of endless child-rearing on the weekends when I'm not babysitting a monitor and telephone, it's extremely hard for me to secure even an hour on Saturday or Sunday to cash out in the middle of the day, when my body screams bloody murder for a sweet siesta.

Somehow I don't think this article will convince her...zzzzzzzzz...

...but 100% more likely to die of starvation brought on by not being able to hold a job. (btw: i'm in my jammies as we speak and about to crawl into bed for an hour)
