Is It 5:20 a.m., Or 5:20 p.m.? Does This Ever Happen To You?
I was reminded why I try to avoid afternoon naps, even though my daily wake-up time is 3:30 a.m. Yesterday I fell asleep on the sofa in the late afternoon, and woke up to the sound of a text-message.
It was already after dark, and as I grabbed the phone, I saw “5:20.” My usual arrival time at the FUN 107 studio is around 4:30 a.m. The first thought was “is it saturday?”, then I realized there hadn’t yet been a Friday.
My next flash was “How could I Have Spent the night on the sofa?” By then I was beginning to realize that it may still be Thursday evening, and I may not be late for the show. But those few seconds of confusion and panic were a good reminder of why I need to save the sleep for the bed later in the night.
