Lately I’ve been snoozing my 100-words alarm more than my morning alarm, which is an accomplishment. I never was an early riser. I was in the afternoon kindergarten class, and in first grade I never woke up before my alarm. In high school the first few minutes of breakfast were usually spent with my head on the dining table trying to squeeze in a bit more sleep before rushing off with my shoes not yet tied to get to my seat with my trumpet just in time for rehearsal. And I’d rather forget the seven o’clock labs in college.
