The Penis Chronicles presents, “Fall suddenly or heavily asleep.”

The google definition of zonk as a verb is “1. Hit or strike 2. Fall or cause to fall suddenly and heavily asleep or lose consciousness” (February 7, 2017).

My older boy has an amazing ability to zonk out; it has never been a trait I could master. However, he has fallen asleep chewing pizza and slept through me fishing that bite of pizza out of his mouth, and then moving him from point A to bed. In this particular pizza sleeping incident point A was a bumbo chair and we went out the front door and down the street to our house where I deposited him in bed.

ZZZ is defined by google as “a sound used to suggest the sound of sleeping or snoring. A comic book showing someone sleeping with a speech bubble overhead is an example of ZZZ” (February 7, 2017).

There have been so many of these priceless zonked out moments. Do you have any to share?
