#1210 – Floored

The mistake I always made was sitting back down on the bed…

“I just need to sit here for a second to put these socks on. That’s so weird how bright the sun is this morning. It’s usually just barely coming up by the time I get to work. Who is sending me text messages this early in the morning? Oh nuts…”

    Several people I know have the habbit to unconsciously turn off their alarm while still sleeping. when someone mentioned it towards me, it happened just the other day to me, too.

    I actually put my alarm clock on the other side of the room, back before I had dogs. Now, I *never* get to sleep in – a pair of large dogs simply will not allow it. They’re worse than toddlers, in that respect.

    The mistake I make? I tell myself I need to get up soon, so I start imagining myself getting up, where I lapse into a dream about me starting my day. It always ends in my waking up thirty minutes later, disappointed I now have to get up. Again.

    After convincing a friend that a 6am running class was a fantastic idea I woke up every hour, on the hour, for fear of not waking in time. Not once did I think to check my alarm which was set for 5:30 pm. Nor did I wake up until 6am by which time I didn’t have a chance to make the class. It seems that the waking up is what troubles me more than the falling back to sleep.

    you know, for a second there i was thinking “is biff doing cocaine? what the hell?” but then i saw the toothbrush and read the caption and all was right with the world.

    @MaskMan I did that too…and then it was promptly moved back by my parents, who didn’t understand that unlike them I don’t have the advantage of a hungry 20kg Border Collie to wake me up. Now I sometimes have a hungry cat that wakes me up by headbutting me to see if I’m still alive and meowing at me if I don’t immediately get up and give him some biscuits.

    Toothbrushing, on the other hand, tends to wake me up. Nothing like getting rid of morning-breath and fuzzy teeth to wake you up.

    Funny, ever some some idiot drover their car into the wall of my bedroom (while I was asleep), I haven’t had any trouble getting up in the morning.

  8. MaskedMan says:

    @dartigen; 18kg Border Collie, and a 43kg Shiloh. AND a cat.
    No such thing as sleeping in, these days.

    On the other hand, when I wore a uniform, I was often able to sleep right through Duty Section drills, even alarms, when I wasn’t in the duty section. On yet a third hand, if I *was* in the Duty Section, an anouncement of alarm would have me up and moving before my brain actually woke up.

    There is no snooze button on a hungry cat.

  10. @ Cari i don’t have cats but i have two dogs they don’t wake me up my mom on the other hand says you better start waking up bud and i immediately wake up have breakfast and the next thing i know i’m off to hsa

  11. MadDavid says:

    My alarm clock is all the way across the room. So instead of turning it off in my sleep, I have to get up and go across the room to turn it off before going back to sleep for another hour.

  12. Linzleh says:

    Acute vibratory somnolent response… Tricky fix, perhaps Biff should invest in “impact activated tickle carpet.”

  13. MaskMan says:

    @Linzleh; Either that, or shift to the jackhammer toothbrush.

  14. Radical Edward says:

    I sometimes get up very early in the morning, then go back to bed for a few more hours. I usually find myself watching the same movie over and over and over again.

  15. Voyager says:

    See, we’re running this test procedure, except every ten minutes or so, something goes wrong in it, and sets of the buzzer, so we have to hit the restart button, again and again and again and again, and then I begin to wonder, what are we testing, and what is it really supposed to be doing?

  16. Oh lordy. Almost every morning I wake up about 5 minutes before I’m supposed to be out the door because I hit the snooze ONCE then sleep through the second alarm.
