Dear Auto Surf,

How do you win at Group Naps?

-Little Brother


Dear yosef

Group Naps is not about winning individually. You win as a team or not at all.

That being said, I'm pretty sure I won against the rest of my family for a while. I'm the youngest of six by a good margin, so for a long time I had more energy than anyone in my family. This made Sunday afternoons tricky because everyone would come home from church to take a nap, and I would... be mischievous, basically. Not that I was trying to be; I was just bored. But I think it was less than pleasant for my family to wake up to indoor bug collections, colored-on walls, etc. 

One day, noticing the dissonance between my family's activities and my own, I started the No Nap Club. I was tired (ha) of having boring afternoons and didn't understand the utility of naps, so I figured I might as well make an organization for it. I think my eldest brother was part of it for a while, but for most of the time I was the sole member. I'm not sure if we did anything as a club except exist, but it was a matter of principle I was trying to prove. Probably.

Eventually the club disbanded as I came to understand the power of naps, and desired to no longer speak evil against them. 

And thus Group Naps did reign in the Surf household, and continue to still. 

Take care,

-Auto Surf
