Is It Day?


Yes, Beast. It is day.
I'm a heavy sleeper. I got in at about 6 this morning and crashed on the couch. The Beast awoke right before 10; it had overslept. It was half-asleep once awake, the Beast. It did not see the sun, and if it did, it did not realize its significance.

"Is it day?" the Beast yelled. "Is it day?" Now it was near my face, though I was unconscious. Its volcanic, Kowalskiesque bellowing did not awake me.

I finally woke up at about 3pm with most of my body weight rested on the "channel up" button on my remote control, so the channels presumably had been changing for almost nine hours.
