Today’s tid bit is listed as “Your earliest memory.” I tried really hard to figure out which one that might be but I just couldn’t remember. Frankly, I was a bit young at the time and didn’t have it all together, my recall of those days is a bit hazy. So all in all, I think rather than skipping it entirely, I’ll just reinterpret what they’re asking. I’m good at that.
So today’s bit is now changed to “Your earliest memory… of the day.” I woke up today and remember distinctly looking at the alarm clock and thinking – it is way too early to be awake. Nothing worse than going to bed late and waking up early. I had a very difficult time getting back to sleep but I managed. When I awoke a second time it was a much more respectable hour of the day – midday to be exact.
Then I thought to myself that it would be much easier to get out of bed if I just had caffeine at the ready. Why should I be normal and keep my coca cola and tea in the kitchen? I should be smarter about it. I should install a mini fridge right next to my side of the bed so that next time when I wake up in the wee hours of the dawn – rather than lying there thinking, I need to go back to sleep – I can reach into my mini fridge, crack open a cold coca cola and wake the hell up.
This would of course generate new problems. If I were to wake up early I might get the notion that I should be productive and accomplish things in those newly found hours. I might be able to write more since the rest of the house is asleep until midmorning. I might go to bed early since I was getting up so early. That would rearrange my whole schedule, if I had one. Come to think of it – I think I’ll just stick with staying up late and sleeping in.
