Dear Auto Surf,
How do you win at Group Naps?
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.
