But NOT sleeping. That comment might not make sense, but I recently realized the difference. I've fallen asleep on my sofa many times. It's soft and comfortable. Great for taking those half hour to one hour naps in the afternoons. I wake feeling refreshed and ready to go.
The other night I gave up my bed to my sister, who'd driven in from North Carolina. Dad was in the guest room. I thought, no problem, I'd sleep on the sofa. After all, it's comfortable and I don't have any problem taking naps on it. That's when I found out sofas are okay for napping but not for sleeping.
I tossed and turned and couldn't fall to sleep to save my life. I couldn't understand it. What's the difference between taking a nap and spending the night on it? I managed to get to sleep after a while, kind of, for a few short hours. Only to wake exhausted in the morning.
Thank goodness it was only for one night.
