Enamel pin "Good at naps" by People I've loved

Oh man, this pin goes for half of the population... Who doesn't like a nap? Imagine it, in a hammock, under an olive tree, listening to the sound of the mediterranean sea... ok most of the time it's in front of the TV, asleep and slobbering, but let's keep it romantic, shall we?

Pauline tells you a story:

The siesta is historically common throughout the Mediterranean and Southern Europe. It is the traditional daytime sleep of Spain and, through Spanish influence, the Philippines, and many Hispanic American countries. The word siesta of the Spanish language derives originally from the Latin word hora sexta "sixth hour" (counting from dawn, hence "midday rest"). Siesta is also common in Italy (there called riposo, pisolino), where museums, churches and shops close during midday so that proprietors can go home for a long lunch and perhaps a snooze during the day’s hottest hours. Einhard's Life of Charlemagne describes the emperor's summertime siestas: "In summer, after his midday meal, he would eat some fruit and take another drink; then he would remove his shoes and undress completely, just as he did at night, and rest for two or three hours."
