Okay, so here's what happens on occasional mornings when I think someone else in this house should be awake to keep me company no matter what time it is. Mom always sets up dad's coffee maker the day before, so dad just has to hit the button at bedtime that'll make it ready by the time he slides out of bed. Currently, it's set to start brewing at 4:30 so that it's ready when dad rises at 5:00, but more often than not he's out there once he hears it spitting and sputtering to life. I seem to go through spurts of whatever you want to call it, waking mom and dad by 3:00 by walking back and forth over them, talking loudly, unable to settle and generally
being annoying just being me.
This particular recent morning happened to also be the morning after dad snuck an additional cup of water and scoop of grounds into the coffee maker after mom had set it up (mom'll just be hearing about this for the first time when she reads this). He must've known something. Anyway, that clock was not changed to enhance this post. He did, in fact, finish that whole pot by 5:45 a.m. 👀 Who does that? Any other fiends out there?
