Overbooked, Overtired
By Beth Beutler

1     Sheila yawned during her ninth grade homeroom class. Mark playfully smacked her arm, saying, "Wake up, Sleepy!"
2     The teacher began to call out the names on her roll.
3     "Sheila."
4     "Here," Sheila said with a yawn.
5     After homeroom ended, Sheila slowly gathered up her book bag and stumbled out of class.
6     "What is wrong with you today?" Mark said.
7     "I am so tired," Sheila admitted.
8     "What time did you go to bed?" Mark asked.
9     "I went to bed around midnight, the same time I usually do."
10     Mark rolled his eyes. "And what time did you get up?"
11     "I got up about six o'clock, as usual."
12     Mark sighed. He had known Sheila a long time and knew she was a driven person. He also knew that only six hours of sleep a night could catch up with someone quickly. He sometimes wondered how Sheila kept up the pace she did. She got all A's, had a job after school every day, volunteered at her church every Sunday, and babysat on Friday nights.
13     Out of curiosity, Mark asked, "What do you do on Saturdays, Sheila?"
