Hi everyone! What terms do you use to describe a person who can fall asleep quickly?
Thanks so much!
I can't think of a specific term for such a person, but you can say of someone who has fallen asleep very rapidly that they were "out like a light".
There are phrases:
- she's asleep before her head hits the pillow
- he goes out like a light
- closes his eyes and he is dead to the world
Also "narcoleptic" but I advise you look it up before using it.
I'm puzzled therefore I think.
Erik and tony h : Thanks a lot for the terms. They really help.
