Are you exhausted?

If so, there might be a socially acceptable way — at least for today — for you to take a nap.

While the outdoor weather in Corpus Christi isn’t the most conducive for it,  Feb. 28 is National Public Sleeping Day.  It’s meant to be a day to sleep at the park, at the beach, in a movie theater or even on public transportation.

While it’s not a great day — nor is it ever — to sleep while driving, there are other ways to take care of your urge today.

So go for it, but don’t sleep too long.

The website National Calendar Day provides ways to celebrate National Sleeping Day:


Top 5 Places for Public Sleeping

5. Under a tree in a park

4. The mall in the middle of the work week

3. Reference aisle of the library

2. Last pew in church during services

1. A theater showing old silent movies

And at least for one day, you won’t lose while you snooze.
