Fat Nap.

I’m going to take a fat nap.” What does that statement conjure up in your mind? Or perhaps you have heard it before and know exactly what it means. Well, I’m admitting now that this was a totally new expression to me.

It brought me two very instant images, one much pleasanter to think about than the other.

First, going to bed, leaving any excess fat there to ‘sleep’ and getting back up much more toned and slender. Lumps of something akin to lard would be left on the mattress to await a return when they would somehow slip their way back in to place.

Now the second image is much nicer and was the one I decided to keep in my mind. Fat, plump, dream-filled clouds just waiting to enfold one in a soft and gentle luxury. Fly me away to a dream-filled sky anytime!

As it happened the second image was closer to the real meaning; a ‘fat nap’ is nothing more or less than a ‘long sleep’.
