LJ Idol week 2: deconstruction

The alarm goes off. I roll over and fumble for the snooze button on my cell phone, returning the room to silence. My thoughts drift…

~~~~~

Is it that time already? Didn’t I just lie down?

I cannot get used to it being this light out, this early. 

Wouldn’t it be fun if it could be light out – I could float through my three mile run and bounce to work just to prove I can.

“Because we cancan cancan cancan cancan can!  <Bawaaoh, tweedle-bop!>” That’s a good wake up song.

A boat leaves a wake that is pretty, but treacherous.   

The autumn leaves are lovely, especially when they contrast with the dark bark of the trees.

Ugh that dog needs to stop barking, doesn’t he know I’m trying to sleep?

Mmm the bed is warm.

No, I can’t sleep. I have to get up and go for a run. I probably should have left ten minutes ago.

If I turn left when I head out I could run to the park.

My head doesn’t hurt this morning; my day is already a success! 

Mmmm - the clock lies – surely I have more time…

ZZZZZ.

The alarm goes off again.

 

@@@This is my entry for week 2 of LJ Idol – Deconstruction. The song I referenced is from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack: "Because we can" by Fatboy Slim.  Thanks for reading – I may link to the poll this weekend if I get around to it, I totally missed it last week.@@@

It IS so hard to wake up some mornings....I can relate to this. Cute one!

Thanks - I wanted to follow the way one word sparks a new thought in the drifty morning space.

Darn those alarms! Grins.

Right! Always too early in the morning.

I am NOT a morning person! My partner's alarm goes off at 5:30 no matter what day it is. Bleh.

Well done...and fun to read.

I get up before my partner, so I usually try not to snooze very much so he can stay asleep. But somedays I'm not so kind...

Hee! I notice in the winter months my wake up time inches later and later.

Waking up in the dark is always difficult.

Boat's wake... autumn leaves... because, these are basically *dreams*, aren't they? I'm glad you decided to imitate, you know, the whole *thought process* that comes with waking up. Not an easy thing.

Yeah I was trying to play with words so the boat 'leaves' a wake > autumn 'leaves' and the tree's 'bark' > the dog 'barking'. Just the way your thoughts drift while halfasleep and their meanings aren't nailed down.

Thanks for the kind words.

I enjoyed this! And I'm entirely too familiar with this scenario, watching my husband go through this every morning. Good luck this week!
-Allie.

Just one more snooze has been my enemy for awhile now, glad to know I'm not the only one.

Thanks!

I hate getting up in the morning too!

And they just keep getting earlier.

lol... I think I have some of the same confused, non-sequitur type mental ramblings every morning too. Nicely done.

This is my morning every morning. :O
