6:15 - alarm goes off.
Motivated (and ridiculously optimistic) Allison: It's 6:15! I'm so glad I decided to wake up early today, this will give me plenty of time to fix my hair, eat a balanced breakfast, and do my daily devotional before arriving to class in plenty of time to be ready to begin learning for the day.
Narcoleptic Allison: I hate you. Sleep. (presses snooze button).
6:23 - radio alarm goes off again.
Narcoleptic Allison: Has it really been eight whole minutes?
Motivated Allison: All right! Time to get --
Narcoleptic Allison: (presses snooze and immediately falls back asleep)
6:25 - cell phone alarm goes off from the BATHROOM, where I have strategically placed it to make sure I have to get out of bed to turn it off.
Motivated Allison: If I get up now, I'll still be able to fix my hair with barely enough time.
Narcoleptic Allison: Okay, we're getting up now. (walks to the bathroom, grabs phone, gets back in bed, resets alarm with eyes closed, falls back asleep).
6:31 - radio alarm goes off again.
Motivated Allison: I should definitely get up now so I can pick out my clothes for the day. I bought a new sweater and I'm really excited about wearing it!
Narcoleptic Allison: I was going to get up this time for sure, but there's a commercial on the radio. Who wants to wake up to a carpet commercial? I bet there will be a good song on eight minutes from now. (snooze again)
6:39 - radio alarm goes off again.
Motivated Allison: I love this song! Perfect motivation to get out of bed. Let's go.
Narcoleptic Allison: Class starts at 8:00. It will take me approximately five minutes to drive there if I hit the traffic light. 15 minutes for shower and clothes, 5 minutes to make coffee. So technically, I could sleep until 7:35. (snooze again) Note: Narcoleptic Allison is really awesome at math. Even when asleep, she can figure out complex equations relating to timing of morning routines.
6:45 - cell phone alarm goes off again.
Narcoleptic Allison: Good thing the phone's in bed with me this time, turning it off is a lot easier. (snoozes the cell phone alarm)
6:47 - radio alarm goes off again.
Motivated Allison: You are not pressing snooze again. This is getting ridiculous.
Narcoleptic Allison: But - but -
Motivated Allison: Do not close your eyes.
Narcoleptic Allison: I'm closing them.
Motivated Allison: NO.
After several minutes of struggle, M.A. usually drags N.A. out of bed. It's usually a close battle, but so far, M.A. has been able to prevail.
Does anyone else have a similar morning routine, or is it just me?
