    "but there were those nights where sleep just wave me goodbye"

    Truth be told, Iím regularly a heavy sleeper but there were those nights where sleep just wave me goodbye and wished me good luck with my future endeavors, and all I had left was my remote control.

    Has the subject-verb agreement been applied here, please? I think that the verb wave refers to the nearest noun which is sleep. The writer here states that s/he kept nights not just one night sleepless, though.

    It should be 'waved me goodbye'.
