Waking up (day 19)
I'm skipping days because I'm the boss.
I hate waking up. I am not an early-bird. Ideally, I want to sleep so late that there is not even a hint of morning left. This is very conducive with having small children, teaching school, or maintaining any degree of viable employment.
I like taking walks late at night when my neighborhood is silent. I like places that stay open late, and I like crawling into bed at 4 am after talking until sentences don't make sense.
Some of my best friends are night owls. I think everyone should have a list of people they can call past midnight, knowing they will answer fully awake-the the TV playing in the background, and the sound of food cooking.
Why are you making spaghetti at 3 am?
I was hungry, do you want to come over?
For the record, I'm mostly reformed now. I don't stay up late unless it's the weekend, and it has to be really good spaghetti.
