When I wrote this prompt, I had to really dig back into my brain holes to remember the last time I stayed up all night.
It was a long time ago, I guess, because the closest I’ve got recently was after we had a horror movie night with our D&D buddies.
I hate horror movies. They really scare the crap out of me—and in this case, kept me up until stupid o’clock.
Before that, it’d probably be when we did a charity walk overnight with a couple of friends—we started at midnight and walked the Ridgeway in Oxfordshire, finishing at about 8 am. It was cool and awful and exhausting and my legs have never hurt so much.
The next time will be Dinosnores at the Museum of Natural History in London, for my birthday next year… SO EXCITED.
How about you? When was the last time you stayed up all night? Why?
Set a timer for 5 minutes and reminisce away.
