I think that I’ve discovered the source of my insomnia. When I was little my mother used to sing me to sleep. This is an excellent strategy except that she sang a lullaby founded on reverse psychology. It clearly had the opposite effect. Here’s how the song went:

Stay awake. Don’t go to bed.
Stay awake. Don’t nod your head.
Though the moon is on the rise…
Stay awake. Don’t close your eyes.

    Your mother was obviously inspired by Mary Poppins, but luckily she changed the words a bit.
