Caught Napping

She Sells Sea Shells On The He-Snores

The worst snorers in Britain will attend a special boot camp next month, seeking a cure. More than 200 people applied for just six places on the military-style weekend - which the chosen few will attend with their sleep-deprived partners. A strict sergeant-major will be there to make sure no one smuggles in cigarettes or alcohol.

FOOTNOTE: Seeking z-z-z-z-z-en.

The Olympiad of sleep apnea. Wonder how they competed in the selection process.

Oh. lordy. This sounds painful, for everyone involved.

Wouldn't the sleep-deprived partners get more rest at home alone?

When I was in the Navy there were 4 girls in my room. One of them snored dreadfully and it often woke me from a sound sleep. I really feel for those spouses.

Cheers!

Okay so what is the point of said mates attending? They could be home catching up on sleep and applying for sleep clinic status! There's more than one way to escape a snorer...if you hold a pillow over their face and you can still hear them snoring you aren't holding the pillow down hard enough...

That sounds like a very funny, very Aussie or British sit-com.

The best thing Judy and I ever did was to move to separate rooms! It probably saved my life!

And, the tiptoeing across the hall was kind of exciting!

If we were in Britain we would SO sign up! But I agree with the others - why does the spouse need to go??? Are they going to teach them how to make the snorer stop? I find a swift kick can help, or pinching of the nose. Or sending him to the couch. AAAAAH! Sleep!
