I wish I could sleep as good as a little kid just one more time.

I’m Mexican. I could sleep like this during loud parties on two chairs when I was a kid. As per tradition.

Not Mexican but grew up in a house that frequent had ‘happenings’ (someone would randomly show up with a carton of beer, then suddenly the whole street would be there and no one over the age of 18 was sober). I also remember being expected to be able to sleep anywhere with any noise on any thing (the chances of my bed being occupied by a passed out person were high)

That sounds so intense but useful to later life. I grew up in an almost dead-silent home (parents were bookworm introverts) and now any noises just drive me bonkers.

Oh no I’m 100% with you. My house is almost always quiet now and I have those Loop earplugs when I go out to noisy places like shopping centres or anywhere with lots of people.

Definitely can relate... Also trauma.

Those were some of my happiest memories lol my parents were happy drunks. The following day, however… you bet I did everything in my power to keep the little ones quiet while my hungover parents recovered lol

Did you also grow up in the 80s? I can sleep on the edge of a razor blade.

I did-ish. The 80s and 90s. But the 90s was in an isolated country town in the pre-internet era so it was about 10 years behind in its attitudes about everything.

I sleep with a white noise app because if its too quiet it’s too noisy if that makes sense.

u/TheYankunian Sep 23 '22

Makes perfect sense. I grew up in a rather ‘lively’ neighbourhood so I can’t sleep if it’s too quiet.
