Morgan Freeman Takes an Extended Blink (Nap) on Live TV
Sometimes, you’re in a meeting, sitting across someone at dinner or even on live TV and you notice your eyes getting heavy. And they start closing themselves and your head bobs. And the more you fight this, the heavier your lids get and the longer each blink you take lasts.
Morgan Freeman found himself in the same predicament the other day as he was promoting his latest movie with Michael Caine. Watch the video on Q13 Fox’s site (I had the vid embedded here originally but it was autoplaying. BOOOO!), but you can get the gist of it by just seeing the picture below.
HA! My dude was SO unable to fight the power of the strong nap that was descending upon him like a plague. That “I can’t do nothing to stop it” struggle is SO REAL and I feel you, Morgan! Was he up all night hitting his dougie somewhere?
He musta been TAH’D so don’t come for Morgan when he ain’t send for you, though. If you were as old as he is, you’d fall asleep at random places too. If you were Jesus’ locker partner in the 3rd grade, surely your soul would be weary. Y’all know Morgan was God’s intern. That’s why he played Him so well. Bless his heart. I bet he got in the limo right after this and conked out like a G.
It’s happened to me more than a couple of times and chile… it’s like your body just says “I cannot. I must do this for us.” And you just knock out.
The times when I’ve been out and fell asleep at the table, as long as I wasn’t snoring or creating a drool puddle, I try to play it off. I be outchea tryna act like I was just checking out my nails. I’m a mess. Or when folks notice your head has been down for a while, you wake up, say “AMEN!” and look back up. Ain’t nobody gon check you for saying a prayer. HA!
I’ve fallen asleep at the club before. Right next to the speakers too. There was no stopping that nap that covered me like a blanket. And I fall asleep on public transportation more often than not. If my young ass falls asleep in the most inappropriate places, what is Mr. “Been here for a while” Freeman ‘posed to do? He is older than the 10 commandments. He can fall asleep wherever and whenever he wants and WHO GON CHECK HIM?!? I’m saying.
Someone asked Morgan Freeman “TURN DOWN FAH WUT?” And he replied “FOR THIS NAP!” Welp.
So have you ever fallen asleep in public? What did you do to play it off? Did you even try?
Someone commented on my FB page saying Morgan “is not sleep. He’s just slayed from Scandal.” When I tell you I AM HOLLERING?!? LMAOOO! Yall are dumb!
Edit: They asked Morgan Freeman what happened and he said “I wasn’t actually sleeping, I’m a beta tester for Google Eyelids. I was merely updating my Facebook page.” LMAO!!! Best comeback EVER! I salute you, Morgan!
