I'm a Morning Person, Dammit.

We've been married for 16 years. 

You would think in that amount of time one would figure out whether or not their spouse was a morning person. 

You would think. 

Yet, this still happens. 

6:37 - My alarm goes off. I hit snooze. 

Approximately 27 seconds later my husband is standing next to me and says, "Don't you think you better get up?" 

"I do not get up the first time my alarm goes off. I build in time for that when I set it. We've been over this."

"Why don't you just set it for the actual time you need to get up?"

"Because I need to hit snooze. It helps me transition. Why are you making me talk right now? You're eating up my snooze time."

"It's only 9 minutes. You should just get up."

"I feel like you hate me."

"Being a morning person is an attitude, you know. You don't have some sort of affliction that prevents it."

"It's Friday. I don't understand why you've chosen to start the weekend off making me feel murdery."

And then he walked away. 

And then my snooze time was up and my alarm went off again. 

And then he asked me to iron his pants. 

And I did not kill him.

Which once and for all proves I'm a morning person.

  1. OMG, I guess I wouldn't have killed him either but only because I can't find the iron and the alarm clock is too small and not sharp enough. LOL at "I feel like you hate me."

  2. BOL! Mom needs the transition too. But once Stanley sticks his tongue in her ear it makes her get up.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  3. My hubby goes the opposite way- he turns the alarm off, closes the door, and herds the cats off so that I sleep in LONGER. Then, later, he announces to all of our friends that I slept till (insert afternoon time), and laughs. What the Hell is that?

  4. This is sooooo my house, except that the scene gets flip flopped on the weekend with my 2yr old acting in place of an actual alarm. Weekdays, he's out of the bed like it was on fire. Weekends, I have to send the kids in to jump on him. I have NO idea how you managed to not kill him after the ironing request.

  5. I'm with Charming on this one. Except the pants request, obviously. He's on his own there.

  6. Good for you for not at least throwing something at him. My husband would fear for his life if he asked me to iron for him in the morning. He knows it comes with a laugh any other time of day.

  8. I hate your husband so much. I can't think of anyone I hate more than your husband.
