what is this supposed to mean?

It is a silly thing to say, but sometimes silly things help us to remember. Wouldn't it be a terrible thing if you had to wake your book from a nap before you could read it? Fortunately Qongbe' paqmey.

The doctor gave me some sleeping pills against my insomnia.

I'm not sure whether they work - they looked so peaceful in their little bottle that I didn't have the heart to wake them up.

Ah ha ha, "sleeping pills". Cute joke. bIqID!

It's good to have some silly sentences in the examples. Keeps us amused and on our toes!
