Why I’m Tired

I was woken by my pet ant, Alfredo, who was on the floor, tugging at my sheets.

Alfredo said, “I’m hungry, can you get out of bed and put some crumbs in my bowl?”

I said, “Alfredo, I’m sooooo tired. Can you just look around for crumbs on the floor under the dinning room table?”

Alfredo said, “I did. Twice!”

Somehow I found the strength to get out of bed. I walked to the kitchen, sliced off a piece of bread, crumpled it up and put it in Alfredo’s bowl.

I went back to bed. I tried going back to sleep. Alfredo came my again and tugged at my sheets.

Alfredo said, “Thanks for the bread crumbs. Can I have some water?”
