Wake Up!! Not Today...



I don't know about you, but some days I have a really hard time waking the f*** up!!

Namely, Mondays for starters. I mean, REALLY! It's just inhumane to expect people (especially night owls like me) to jump right outta bed on a Monday morning. Mondays should be the day to eeeeeaase into the morning. Maybe knock the first hour off from the start of the work day.... then maybe provide a little breakfast buffet with caffeine as an incentive.

THEN there's Tuesday!! Now there's another day I'm not motivated to wake up to. It's just another Monday hiding behind a different name.

Usually by Wednesday, it begins to get a little easier -- but just a little.

Thursdays aren't too bad.... but Fridays are no problem at all. In fact, it's FINALLY the beginning of the weekend... which is the purpose for my existance on this earth.

Anyway, all that to say that I regularly have trouble staying awake at work, especially on the most difficult mornings. My work place offers no incentives whatsoever for being there ... on time... on these horrible days....

Well, except for the paycheck... but that's another story...

Since I fall asleep at my desk every now and again, I am sharing my top five excuses for what to say when you're caught sleeping at your desk. So far, they've worked for me (whew!)
  • 5) They told me at the Blood Bank this might happen...

  • 4) This is just a 15 minute power nap they raved about in the time-management course you sent me to...

  • 3) Whew! Guess I left the top off the white-out...you probably got here just in time!

  • 2) Did you ever notice the sound coming out of these keyboards when you put your ear down real close?

    And the number one best thing to say when getting caught napping is:
  • 1) ...in Jesus' name, Amen...


You're welcome... ;)

I like to use the "my paperweight told me this hilarious joke just now. Wanna hear it?" excuse. I suppose those would work as well.

My 14-year old was so proud of himself for waking up before 11 a.m. that he called me at work to give me the news.

Ah. To be young and responsibility-free again.

I'm lucky, I get to sleep all day if I want to.

I think you have something in your eye.
