Morning glory


Yeah, so, like a lot of people I am not a morning person.

Still, this morning I had to fulfill my wifely duty of driving David to the airport, which meant I had to get up at 5 a.m., which meant I got up at 5:30 a.m.

The only reason I’ve ever been up at 5:30 a.m. is because I’m making my way home after a night of doing things that make Baby Jesus cry.

This morning, I rolled out of bed, got dressed, put on makeup and my Giants hat because: 1) I’m too lazy to do my hair that early in the morning; and 2) Go Giants! Then, before leaving for the airport, I took Homer out for a walk.

While I was walking around the neighborhood, I heard the Caltrain arriving. “People get on the train this early? They need new jobs,” I thought. “Seriously, I would quit a job, even in this economy, if it meant I had to be up this early.”

Then I walked passed a woman, who climbed into a school bus and drove off: “Ugh. This is school bus-driver early.”

I know that a lot of people get up early every morning for work. They do it because they have to, and they are normal, functioning members of society. I am not one of those people.

So many mornings, I will be sitting in my car and I will see someone jog by me or walk briskly with their dog, and I think, “I really should get up earlier and take Homer for a hefty walk. It would be good for him and for me.” But, I know the truth; that will never happen. Instead, I will sleep until the last possible second and then run around the apartment like a crazy person, take Homer for a walk and then hop in the car and speed to work like I always do.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. I have taken to washing my hair less and less during the week. They say this is one of the early warning signs of depression, but they must be talking about the people who have to look at me, because I still feel great.
