The Post-Camp Nap 2
The struggle is real
If you don’t know, the post camp nap affects everyone. From the youngest kindergartener camper, all the way to the oldest counselor. Interestingly, I have found that this rule does not apply to fourth graders, for some reason those little devils never lose energy. There is such a joy to dozing off on the bus ride home prior to a fun filled day of carrying campers around in the sun. After a hot day, resting your sweaty gross ass body in your air conditioned room can only be described as orgasmic and pure joy.
Oh how I’ve missed taking naps. Working in late night television takes up A LOT of my time. Sometimes my job consists of up to 15 hours production days running around the studio, writing cue cards, working with writers as the script is constantly changing. I like to call my job organized chaos (but I love the chaos, I thrive in the chaos). But the non-stop chaos leaves little room for naps. By the time Saturday Night Live is over, it’s time for bed. Naps are not normally part of my regular schedule.
This Post Camp nap is truly needed after long days of color wars, mini golf tournaments, canoe races, and so much more. Therapeutic if you will. While I know the strike won’t last forever, I know when I return to work I will certainly be missing my post camp naps. With that being said, writers deserve to be paid fairly, and there's no place like Jeff Lake Camp :)
