  • To be lingering at the foot of the stairs with the TV-remote in one hand, about to go to bed, but unable to actually go because you keep finding just one more interesting item to watch.

Others have been discovered the next morning, still there, insisting that “just another five minutes” and they’ll be off to bed.
