It's like his brain is so sympatico with the rest of his body, seemingly no matter where he is, if he lies his head down on a pillow he's out in less than 10 minutes. like it's that matter-of-fact of a physical reaction, "our head has come into contact with a pillow, that means we sleep!"
A trick that I used to use many years ago quite a few times, it's like a version of counting sheep (I'm assuming nobody literally
). But I'd go thru the alphabet and think of someone from my high school graduating class who's first name began with that letter. I never once made it to Z.
