Actually, I know I get up too early. But then who among us hasn’t bargained with the alarm. Just a few more minutes, half an hour tops. Still, the thing blares at 3:30AM and after a quick hug, we roll out of bed.
But that’s not why I know we get up too early.
It’s the news.
I don’t watch the news. I tend to talk back and swear and answer their stupid questions, or provide obscene commentary when they speak. Yes, I do this even when they say the weather.
But the hubbinator watches the news while he eats breakfast, so it is on. Now, I grant I’m still alive after having been born last century, and juggle many tasks every day so I accept I’ll forget things. Which explains why it threw me when I heard the same story yesterday that I heard last week.
I glared at the TV in my usually fashion then asked the hubbinator if this was a repeat.
He agreed that it was.
And so there you have it. Definitive proof. If the news isn’t ‘new’ and the stations have to dig out old interviews to provide programming, then you’re getting up too early.
Anyone else get up early?
