When I was little I was a dedicated night owl. My mother would insist I get to bed by 7pm thinking I would get 10-11 hours of needed childhood sleep.
I used to lay awake hour after hour and amuse myself by watching the digital clock numbers tremble then slide and click into place.
222 was always the last one I would see before I drifted off to sleep.
My mother would wake me up at 6am and be fanatically worried that I had some terrible blood disease because I was exhausted after a supposed 10 hour sleep :)
It would never do to tell her I lay awake all night. That would get me a clout across my head for failing in my sleep duty.
I do find it humorous that after all these years I am no longer a night owl. Now the latest I see the clock is 11:11 and then I'm off to drool land.
Happy 1-11-11, Peeps :) Do something special today.
I command thee! ;)
