Simple, a good night's sleep does wonders. Seriously, I think we (hangers) sleep deeper, quicker. Ever try sleep deprivation? It SUCKS! Lots and lots of studies claim that Americans don't get enough sleep on average. I would assume that carries out to other countries and cultures as well. I know I feel fine after 5 hours of sleep in a hammock, compared with 8+ hours in a bed. Lack of sleep has a dramatic effect on both mood and creativity. I think hangers win-out on both fronts because we are better rested. That's my story and I'm stickin to it!
I remember being told once, "Never have your picture taken with a drink in your hand; you may want to run for office someday.
Yeah, well, let's just say I have zero political ambitions. I may even have a picture of myself with the angry-one sharing a pitcher at Dot's. Sooooo, I wouldn't invest too much in those bumper stickers.
