I plan on sleeping as late as humanly possible today. By which I mean I’ll probably be kicked off the couch sometime around 0900 this morning by some young dude anxious to cram in more video game time before school starts again.
Today is the last day I’ll be able to sleep late, not counting weekends, until spring break hits sometime in April.
See, Sarcasmo goes to a public high school, which means he and I have to get up at 0600 every morning so he can be to school in time for his first bell at 0715.
I am not a morning person. At all. If I had my way, I’d be staying up until the wee hours of the morning and then sleeping in until near noon, when the sun is nice and warm and it’s finally a decent hour out. But public school waits for no man. Or young dude. When that bell rings at 0715, he’s got to be there.
Which means we’ve got to get up before the sun does. I know 0600 isn’t that early for some dudes and dudettes, but, to me, the only reasonable 6 on the clock is the one that comes near dinner time. What can I say? I’m lazy to the bone.
With all that in mind, I’m taking the phone off the hook, unplugging the alarm clock and putting on the sleep mask. I urge you all to do the same.
Enjoy your sleep. I know I will.
Because tomorrow it’s back to the grind.Share on Facebook Tags: A Dude's Guide to Health, A Dude's Guide to Life, alarm, Alarm Clock, April, Bell Rings, Break, clock, Couch, Dinner Time, dude, Dude's, Dudette, Dudettes, early, First Bell, Game Time, Hook, Mask, Morning Person, richard, sarcasm, Sarcasmo, school, sleep, Sleep Mask, sleeping, Spring Break, Sun, Van Winkle, video, Video Game Time, Wee Hours
