This Morning

I had to open this morning. To give you an idea of what this means, I need to shower the night before and be out of bed around 3:45 a.m. I leave my apartment around 4:10 and get to work around 4:20 - ten minutes early. This is typically what happens. Today I rolled over and looked at my clock (which is set 14 minutes fast) and saw that it said 4:36. S-H-*-T! This is an account of what happened:

I jumped out of bed muttering "sh*t, sh*t, sh*t, sh*t." I was so confused and Tedddy was laying in bed, bleary eyed, and watching my stumbling around. I got him out of bed and took him outside for his extremely early constitutional and then rushed back inside to put a work shirt on and my contacts in (yes, I was still wearing my p.j. bottoms - I look so hot right now...). I got in my car and the clock read 4:26 - yes, people, a miracle on earth. I was up, out of bed, somewhat dressed, and in my car in 4 minutes. I drove only fractionally above the speed limit and got to work at 4:33.

11 Minutes. That's how it's done.

Primping for work is so overrated...

I don't think you could call what I do on a typical day "primping." I am still in my p.j. bottoms and working my second shift. Hey, why fix what ain't broke?
