If You Were A Dormilón You’ll Recognize All These Ways Our Moms Woke Us Up For School

LA schools are working on starting their days later because more and more young people are not getting the sleep they need. I wish this had been the law when I was growing up, because getting out of bed was a struggle. I had a mom, who like most moms had no time or help, and definitely had no patience when it came to me wanting to sleep in.

You know how it starts, just like I do:

You somehow stayed up late watching TV with the brightness down and close captions on.

Because you know mami’s hearing is better than a fruit bat and she wasn’t having no late nights.

Then, at some point around 3am, you decide, “okay, I can probably go to bed now, I’ll get 5 hours, I’ll be fine.”

The alarm goes off, and if you blink once, you’re done.

But there’s one alarm that isn’t snoozed so easily.

1. “El cuco viene a despertarte…”

There’s nothing that will get you in or out of bed faster than an “El Cuco” threat. And you know mami has him on speed dial.

2. “Te bañas o te baño.”

3. “¿Quieres la chancla?”

4. Switching the lights on and off.

5. Shouting, clapping, screaming, singing, blasting the radio, shouting again.

6. Pulling you out of the bed by your feet.

7. Jumping on your bed.

But that doesn’t matter as long as you’re following mami’s rules at home, coño!

celina sleep walk Ended In Her Being Trapped And Naked.

The phenomenon of sleepwalking has long captivated readers, watchers, and family members alike. The sleep disorder often occurs during a state of low consciousness and can see people affected perform a list of activities such as talking, walking, walking to a bathroom, consuming food, even cleaning. Researchers aren’t altogether certain about what causes this type of sleep disorder but some are known to be caused by certain triggers like food or exercise

TikToker Celina Myers is one such sleepwalker who recently went viral after sharing that her triggers include cheese and chocolate. Ever since Myers has been posting hilarious footage of herself sleepwalking around her house.

Celina, who goes by Celinaspookyboo on TikTok, has racked up a fleet of followers thanks to her videos.

In the hysterical series of videos, the beauty brand owner and author can be seen talking in her sleep, stalking around her home in her pajamas, and attempting to start fights with her furniture.

“I know that David Dobrik was there, with all the influencers that I really like,” Myers told BuzzFeed News of a recent dream she shared of thinking she was at a jello pool party. “It was really weird. I remember throwing things into the jello pool, like it was really weird… I think the very first time I was about 4 years old and my mom asked me where I was going in the middle of the night, and I was like, ‘I’m going to see mom.’ And she’s like, ‘I am mom, go to bed.’”

Myers said she was inspired to do a series capturing herself sleepwalking after she ended up locked out of a hotel room completely naked.

“I got the midnight chocolate cheesecake that they had, didn’t even think of it. Next thing I know, I’m down the hallway and I’m naked,” Myers explained. “When I did wake up there was like these two chairs — I took the two cushions and I put one on the front and one on the back. I was really close to the front desk, and I kind of just put my head around the corner…I saw how much people loved it and I was like, this is our full-time job, we’re home.”

Myers says the reactions to her posts have been mostly supportive with many people telling her that her page has been a light during COVID lockdowns.

“If I can help make people laugh, I don’t mind, this is fun,” she explained. “It’s like my hidden weird talent, like the only thing I have going for me is the fact that I can eat cheese and be weird.”

As of this week, Myers TikTok has exploded to 8.5 million.
