Silly Monkey Stories #26 – Sleep over

 
Canada 20/Dec/2008 – Juan (10)
 
Is it me, or I’m featuring Juan way too much in this series? :-)
 
Juan had a birthday party last Friday (Last Friday!!! With that terrible snowstorm we had!), so I took him over his friend Zack. The party was a ‘sleep over’, this meaning that the guests (or most of them) would spend the night at the birthday boy’s place…
 
We went to pick him up on Saturday morning, because our neighbour Jean had invite all of us to a restaurant for brunch (Wasn’t she nice? There’s another Christmas story for you). We were supposed to meet at the restaurant at 11:00 AM, so we picked Juan up at 10:45 AM. Not only he wasn’t ready –why of course!- but he also let us know that he hadn’t slept at all, which makes me wonder why they call these ‘sleep over’ parties instead of ‘stay up over’ parties…
 
We got in the car and he was asleep about 2 minutes later… and look what happened next!
 
 
Argentina 20/Dic/2008 – Juan (10)
 
Me parece a mí, o Juan está apareciendo muy seguido en esta serie? :-)
 
Juan estuvo invitado a una fiesta de cumpleaños el viernes pasado (El viernes pasado!!! Con el tormentón de nieve que tuvimos!), así que lo llevé a casa de su amigo Zack. La fiesta era un ‘sleep over’ (o pijama party), lo que significaba que se quedaba a dormir en casa de su amigo…
 
Lo tuvimos que ir a buscar a la mañana siguiente, porque nuestra vecina Jean nos había invitado a todos a tener un ‘brunch’ en un restaurante (No estuvo genial? Ahí tenemos otra historia de Navidad). Se suponía que nos íbamos a encontrar en el restaurant a las 11:00 AM, así que lo fuimos a buscar a Juan a las 10:45 AM. No sólo no estaba listo –pero por supuesto!- sino que además nos comunicó que no había pegado un ojo en toda la noche, lo que me hace preguntar por qué les llaman fiestas de ‘sleep over’ en lugar de fiestas de ‘stay up over’ (quedarse levantado toda la noche)…
 
Volvimos al auto y se durmió en menos de dos minutos… y miren lo que pasó después!

We got him to get up and walk (stumble) all the way to the carPudimos despertarlo y que caminara (a los tumbos hasta el auto)
 
pic 041
Once he got in… boom! We hadn’t even left the parking loft yet!Una vez que subió… boom! Ni siquiera habíamos salido del estacionamiento!

He slept all the way back home, and went straight to bed once we got home (1:00 PM)
Durmió todo el viaje, y en cuanto llegamos de vuelta a casa (1:00 PM) se fue derecho a la cama

He got up at 8:00 PM, with absolutely no recollection of what had happened during the day. Ate dinner and went back to bed! :-)
Se despertó a las 8:00 PM, sin recordar absolutamente nada de lo que había hecho ese día. Cenó y volvió a la cama! :-)
