A Washington Post column has been making the rounds that examines the pros and cons of napping in the middle of the day -- a luxury afforded to some folks that have transitioned to working from home during the pandemic.

For some, catching just a 20 minute snooze can enhance creative problem-solving, boost and restore brain power, improve memory, create joy, and help decrease frustration and impulsivity. So maybe that afternoon cup of joe could be effectively replaced with a nap if you're in a position to do so, huh?

For today's 9:30 Nap Time -- Coffee Break, rather -- what songs do you want to hear that mention naps or sleep or might even be nice to nap to?
