I am not a morning person

Okay, I admit it; I am NOT a morning person. In fact, I'd like them a lot better if they started around 10 a.m. I could accept 9 even. However, now that I am retired (yes, I took an early retirement), I have compromised my standards and arise at 8 give or take twenty minutes. That's a H--- of a lot better than the 6:15 it used to be. You see, I'm a night person. Midnight is a good time to go to bed and read for an hour. Don't you agree? I realize there are morning people too, heck, I'm married to a very dear one. I just don't understand it. Oh, yeah, I know about circadian rhythms intellectually, but when Angela rolls out of bed at 6 a.m., my brain doesn't accept that as normal activity. It's nice, though, when the paper is in, the tea water is hot, the dogs have been fed, and all I have to do is stumble into the kitchen and pry my eyes open enough to pour the hot water over my tea bag. So, I'm not complaining. I'm just stating facts. Perhaps that's just another one of the nice things about being married to an early riser, and the fact that mine is also a T, just makes it all the more special.
