Night Bird

I’m a night owl. I do my best works at night. But I’m also an early bird, going in to work at 7:30 a.m. (given, it’s less than a mile from home). I don’t mind waking up early if I have to.

If I have my choice, I’d rather sleep in.I seem to make up for it on the weekend when I sleep, and sleep, and sleep…

I just realized I got that from my dad.

My dad’s office is connected to the house. We live in a townhouse, attached home type building. You open the door and voila, it’s dad’s company. So my dad works super late, and he’d come home to watch some more CNN before going to bed around 2-3 a.m. Then he’d be up to go to work around 10 or so, or earlier as needed. But when weekend comes, dad sleeps all the way through noon. And man, we had a contest once way back when. I was up at 1 p.m., and that counting hours of pretending to be asleep, and dad was still in bed snoring.

Man, and I thought I only look like him.
