Don't Count Sheep

The days start getting shorter today, always a big day on my scale of small horrors. It's all downhill from here. Of course, it's always downhill from everywhere. That's the lay of the land. Why does that not depress me?
Actually, I know why. I'm stoned, and I've been listening to Steely Dan, Sonny Rollins, and Count Basie. When you can't sleep, don't count sheep Count Basie.
