Morning Theme

I woke up seven times this morning. Really! It was one of these:
Wake up, look at the clock, 5:14am, groan, rollover, back to sleep.
Wake up, look at the clock, 5:32am, groan, rollover, back to sleep.
Wake up, look at the clock, 6:30am, groan, rollover, back to sleep.
Wake up, look at the clock, 6:40am, groan, rollover, back to sleep.
Wake up, look at the clock, 7:00am, groan, rollover, back to sleep.
Alarm, wake up, look at the clock 7:55am, groan, rollover, just 5 more minutes, back to sleep.
Wake up, look at the clock 8:45am, groan, rollover, double take at the clock, PANIC, gasp, fly from the bed, trip over pillows, run to the closet, dress in wrinkly clothes, bolt to the bathroom, put on makeup while pulling on tights and brushing teeth, powder hair so it doesn’t look so greasy, take a swig from the carton of milk, grab a Soft Baked Double Chocolate Brownie Nut and Gluten Free Cookie (Divine!) for breakfast, snatch keys and wallet and cell, throw on coat, pick up bag, exit by 8:50am… and on time.

And the crowd goes wild! Applause! Thank you! Thank you! I’ll be here all week! I call it planned and responsible rushing!  It an art that takes mature talent!
