For Father’s Day, as a “gift for himself,” local dad Jerry Ackleson decided to sleep in a little while on Sunday. His family respected his wishes, and was shocked that he made it all the way until 6:45 in the morning before finally getting out of bed.
“I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen him sleep in that late,” his astonished wife told reporters. “Normally he’s up by 5AM, and there’s no getting him back to sleep, even on the weekend. He must have drank some NyQuil or something, I have no idea how he managed to stay asleep so long!”
Ackleson reported that, while it was nice to sleep in as a treat, he “overdid it,” pointing out that by the time he got up, he had already missed a good hour of Sunday news programming.
