During the weekdays from Spring to Fall, I wake up to children joking on their way to school and fall asleep to frogs croaking in the rice fields.
These 2 sounds are the bookends to my day.
On weekends and holidays I am bookendless …
and don’t have those annoying kids waking me up so damn early every morning!
I kind of miss the frogs in the Winter though.
note: frogs don’t croak when they croak.
Margaret, are you grieving
Over Goldengrove unleaving?
“No it’s those bloody kids outside the window again!”
(apologies to Gerald Manley Hopkins)

I am not a morning person.
It takes me a while to shake off sleep’s cobwebs and function properly.
As for facial features … I don’t know what happens while I’m asleep, but metamorphosis take place.
This morning I awoke to “Blofeld Eye“!
Whose face do you wake up to?
note: I must have “in…creased” my sleeping time.
double note: At least I didn’t wake up to Scaramanga nipples!!!

While you were sleeping
I was doing my laundry
mumbling to myself
having a shower
visiting a nice place
waiting for work to finish
laughing with friends
drinking myself silly
cleaning my toilet
lying on the sofa
and getting on with my life.
Of course the world stops when I’m asleep!
