I love napping.

Sometimes I'll wake up in the morning and immediately take a nap.


But then there's this, which was never 'taught' to me when I was a youngster growing up mormon:

    Doctrine and Covenants 88:124

    124 Cease to be idle; cease to be
    unclean; cease to find fault one
    with another; cease to sleep longer
    than is needful; retire to thy bed
    early, that ye may not be weary;
    arise early, that your bodies and
    your minds may be invigorated.

Note that naps are not mentioned. Nor is there any wisdom given regarding what to do if you had to stay up late. You can't decipher from this word of ghawd how many hours of sleep you should be aiming for.

And finally, is there 'napping' in the CK?

I gather that ghawd does a lot of 'laying', if you know what I mean, but does he ever sleep? If he doesn't need to sleep, then likely napping is also no longer a thing.

Is there pillow talk?

Heck, is there foreplay?

Maybe my joke about Celestial sperm having wings ... isn't a joke!

Yeah, women, wrap your heads around that: your husband's sperm has both wings AND eternal life!!

...what's that buzzing outside the door...



Anyway, I love napping.

My old Mormon seminary teacher (back when being Mormon was OK): There will be no sleeping in the Celestial Kingdom. We'll be far to busy!

Shinehah: Busy doing what??

Seminary teacher: That will be revealed IF you get there.

This has been added to my list of reasons why I don't want to go to the CK. No naps...no go.

I take 4 naps in a row, one right after another without waking up.

Nap spelled backwards is "pan";

wasnt Pan (or was in Pam?) some god or was s/he a myth?

Does the CK have cats? Cats are not unclean, but they take lots of naps. I assume cats are favored in the CK, otherwise why the prohibition on masturbation?

That scripture . . .I think someone was plagiarizing Ben Franklin--not that any of the Mormon canons have ever been plagiarized, of course

"Early to bed. Early to rise. Makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise."

But then someone said, "Follow your dreams," so, I went back to bed.
