I’m all up to tricks this morning. I mean it’s Halloween and I work at a school – it’s like an at work holiday in my book. This mentaliy is a bit bad I know, but I can’t help it. I love my sleep. I even had a battle getting up this morning that went something like this:
Alarm 6:30am – Beep Beep Beep
Brain: Time to wake up!
Body: 6:30! That clock is set 10 minutes fast… it’s really 6:20 – you got ten more minutes and it’s Halloween – no one’s gonna need you right away at work.
Brain: yea, you’re right! good call.
Alarm 6:40 – Beep Beep Beep
Brain: ok we should really start thinking about getting up
Body: Yeah yeah I’ll start thinking.. It won’t take us more than 15 minutes to get ready – we got 5 more minutes – and it remember 6:40 equals 6:30 we got time….
Brain: yeah ok. but we should stop hitting snooze the BF might kill us.
Body: that’s a bit dangerous, no?
Brain: what’s worse us being late or the BF being cranky.
Body: yes. yes. ok well back to snooze
Brain: ok now we really need to get up
Body: two more minutes, i mean what’s two minutes – you don’t need to wash your hair
Brain – get up!! I even gave you 5 minutes… a whole 3 extra.
Body: remember, it’s only 6:40!! PUHLEEESE, you can get up and get out in 10. We already know what we want to wear and I hear showers are overrated.
Brain: you’re so freakin’ lazy!
Brain: Come on, Get er up!! We’re going to be soooo late to work.
Body: No we’re not – and if we are we can always bribe them with Dunkin Donuts.
Brain: Honestly all you think about is donuts.
Body: No I don’t. I think about coffee and donuts.
Brain: Right exactly. Now can we please get up…
Body: Fine, but I want a Coffee Roll.
Body: God, I can’t wait until we Fall back next week – a whole extra HOUR!!
now out of bed, sluggishly walking to the bathroom.
Brain: We’re so late. mumbles I really ought to invest in one of those clocky clocks. Hah! that will really get my Body out of bed.
Body: Huh, what are you saying up there??
Brain: Oh nothing, just pass me the soap.
