Before I sleep on the floor again, let me tell you something -
I have the ways of getting around this; I can stay awake
forever; in my land, creatures do not sleep. Here, by contrast,
I get to watch that trucker nodding off, spinning his wheels at
60mph and crashing through the barrier to the great ditch below.
It's the same with bad audiences everywhere : the story gets lame,
everyone's head begins bobbing, eyes slide shut, and before you
even realize it, the speaker is speaking to no one at all.
