Daydreaming while trying to get to sleep

Being on Oprah

When it's 3 a.m. and I can't sleep

I imagine I'm a famous writer talking to Oprah Winfrey

Talking about how I made it from obscurity to worldwide fame

I talk in a way I don't really talk

Funny and electric and engaging

Every mundane moment of my life becomes a hilarious anecdote

I tell Oprah my earliest memory: Having a temper tantrum in the nursery school canteen

That ended with me tipping a bowl of soup all over the table

"So from the beginning you've always had a fiery temperament then?" smiles Oprah

"Yes," I say, nodding

Suddenly, I get a faraway look in my eyes

As I realize just how sad all this is, how sad I am

Just a 29 year old home maker

Who wants to go to sleep
