I woke up yesterday and it was dark and the fleeting thought crossed my mind, "It's Wednesday, you have to get up early today." Without really willing it, I was out of bed putting on my robe and heading to the coffee maker. Gosh I felt tired. Ugh. Hey, it's my last evil Wednesday wake up time, at least there's that. Bless that spouse, he set up the coffeemaker already. I pushed the button to get the percolating going and shuffled into the office. There was spouse sitting in his computer chair, awake. "What are you doing up so late, it's five in the morning," I mumbled at him. I sat down, opened my email program and said, "Honey, you need to get some sleep. Go to bed so you can get a few hours." Spouse said nothing, so I looked at him and he had a ginormous grin on his face. "What?" I demanded. "Look at the clock Richard," was all he said. The clock read 12:30 but that can't be right. Wait, what? "Go back to bed now, it's not morning," he said. I was momentarily irritated that I had started the coffee, but then realized the cozy, wonderful, fabulous, sleep nurturing mattress was just waiting for me. Oh the joy I felt. I bolted and slept soundly until the alarm rang at 5am. Very bizarre, I don't think I can remember that ever happening to me.
