Dumb awakening

Mornings are my darkest hour.

At the very least, they’re not my brightest. It can take me up to five full minutes to realize when something is going on, and it’s kind of a problem sometimes. Just this morning I awoke to the sound of my alarm, and instead of the usual rightward swipe for stop, I swept leftward for snooze. I never snooze. Something felt off, but I couldn’t pinpoint what it was.

And so I laid there, feeling kind of weird about it all but unable to come up with any sort of thinking strategy to help me deduce the source of this itch. Hell, it didn’t even occur to me to get out of bad like I was prompted to until I was sitting up straight, wondering what the hell had just happened.

Luckily, breakfast and under-breath grunting seem to cure this daze swiftly enough.

    I’m terrible in the morning. I just switch off my alarm and go back to lying down and doing nothing for about 20 minutes before I give up and start moving. I think it’s the cold weather that’s the issue right now. I just don’t want to leave my warm bed.

      Wearable beds are what the modern man needs.

    That’s sort of awful. I’m just the opposite. My brain works too fast in the morning, and then slows down in the middle of the day, only to start up again as soon as I try and sleep.

    This makes me wake up in the morning with a sense of guilt and hopelessness about all I have not accomplished.

    So maybe your way is not so bad, so long as there’s not a fire.
