So I started my New Year off with weird dreams and waking up early. I wish I could blame it all on going on a binge and drinking way to much last night. Unfortunately, I can’t. I had one, count ‘em one, glass of really nasty champagne. Maybe I only had one, because it was really bad. Like so bad it could have passed for cough syrup. So bad it could have been used for an engine cleaner, but would probably dissolve it. So bad that paint thinner asked it how to be as harsh as it. What do you expect for $ 2.00? Certainly not having your stomach lining eaten away. Ah well.
Like I said, I had weird dreams last night. I can’t really remember them now, which is actually to bad. Because they were weird as in funny. Sharing them might give you a closer look into my strange mind than I want, but hey, them’s the breaks.
I can tell you that there were fast cars in there. Some lions, a pet monkey (due to a post on twitter last night I’m guessing), a homeless tooth fairy, and some clowns. And a lot of kitchen utensils. Sounds more like one of my wife’s Narcoleptic dream worlds, but let me tell you this kind of thing isn’t normal for me. The few times it has happened, I always wake up the next day feeling a little off kilter. Like a meteor is about to crash into my front yard or something.
As for waking up, not only was it due to my weird dreams, but also thanks to my daughter. Was it because my loving daughter decided to come in, bounce on the bed like when she was younger and tell me she loved me? Nope. Was it because she was up earlier than me, being inconsiderate as only an 18 year old vain girl can be in the bathroom? Nope.
What was it then?
Her alarm clock.
My daughter takes a little after my wife in some ways. Mainly, she hates to wake up. So my daughter is a snoozer. You know, one of those people who set the alarm, then hit the snooze button a time or two? Hey, I do that myself. What I DON’T do, is hit the stupid thing for two hours, like my daughter does. I think she is getting me back for all the times I went into her room and bounced on HER bed and told her I love her, acting like a big dog, barking and all that. Which is annoying, I know. But being annoying to your children is a God given right. A necessity even.
So, thus begins a New Year and a New Decade. Weird dreams and an annoying alarm clock. Three cheers to coffee, yes?
