Around the clock Unbelievabaility

As Michael said, being an Unbelievable is a 24/7 thing. It's not a job we do, it's who and what we are. As a result, there's a lot of pressure to be 'on' all the time. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. Why would I? How could I?

Still, it's a little overwhelming sometimes. Walking into a room and seeing people move away from windows. Guys pulling up next to you at a stoplight and revving their engines. That kind of thing. And yes, even when we sleep. I'm sure you can imagine how often our foes think that sleepy time is a perfect time to ambush us with an assassin or two.

Henri Grand!
"Who's a baby now?"
All I can say is thank goodness for safe, non-habit forming, specially-designed-for-us, pharmaceutical sleep aids.
