My eyes opened on the alarm clock blinking at me.
Huh? Blinking? Crap!
Apparently the power had tripped some three plus hours ago. Luckily my circadian system still works and that’s what woke me. I glance at the burgeoning dawn outside my window, grab my cell phone and see I have roughly forty minutes to get it together and catch the bus.
You can do this, shake a tail feather, Raivenne!
Please note, I am not a morning At. All. So I am still not quite awake as I haul arse out of bed and head to the bathroom for my morning ablutions. I am under the shower when my brain starts to come online at last.
Why didn’t the alarms on my mobile wake me, even if the clock radio didn’t?
Oh for fuck’s sake! It’s bloody Sunday!
Sigh – I’m wide awake now, in annoyance.
On the plus side – I’ve changed my sheets, completed the Sunday Whirl, posted the story that sprang from it, checked my emails and now have an easy slice to submit today.
Even better – once I post this I’m off to brunch!
Today is Day 4 of the March Slice Of Life Story Challenge.
Come see how others are slicing it up today.
