Stay Awake!

Hello Everybody,
A few days back I was making a list, a list of persons, games, food and other.
Meaning… indeed, a sleepover!
So, worst thing that could happen on a sleepover, beside the party failing,
would be everyone falling asleep, right?
Now.. how can we make sure that we won’t fall asleep?
I guess you need some survival tips now.. don’t you?
Well, glad to be at your service:
1. Sleep.
Indeed, sleep, not on the sleepover, but simply the night before.
If you do this you’ll be ready for a long night of staying awake.
Easy, but effective!
2. Light and bright.
Keep on the lights, don’t close the curtains in your room.
Just for the fact that light makes it a lot easier to simply keep your eyes open.
3. Have fun.
Just have fun. Do what you want to do and you won’t even notice you are getting tired.
Start a pillow fight and stay a bit active aswell. Which won’t ever hurt anyone,
the activity I mean.. wasn’t talking about the pillows.
Or.. what about hide and seek in the dark?
Can be really childish but really fun also.
Who’s going to seek today…. hmm.
4.  Horror.
Always works for me this one, just scare yourself silly.
Then you simply won’t be able to fall asleep too easily.. or just not anymore.
Might seem cruel,
but works brilliantly!
5.  Golden rule.
Make the golden rule,
and keep each other to the rule.
When someone looks like fade off into the dream world, half on the train heading off to candy-land.. wake them up.
Might get embarrassing maybe, but only gives you more force to stay awake.
6. Go outside.
Fresh air won’t hurt you either when you are getting about drowsy, just watch to not wake the whole neighbourhood, not very polite is it?
7. For who likes it..
Coffee.. no not my thing no, but you could drink coffee to keep you awake, or energy drinks,
who I don’t like either… You know, lets skip this point.
As you see, it might be very easy to stay up…
Let’s hope my sleep will spare me at the coming sleepover,
though I still got a few good weeks to figure out who and what. 
And… winter sport.. good idea right? With the winter this close to my front door.
Or.. not… you know….
If you break a leg you can stay longer,
if you are lucky again I mean,
waiting on the air ambulance.

    That’s great…but you forgot something: LOUD MUSIC will definitely wake a dozing soul!!!

      I was thinking about putting it down.. but..
      Wouldn’t that be firstly bad for your ears?
      And beside that.. bad for the already decreasing contact with your neighbours?
