Almost there...

Thursday, June 24, 2010


My body has a remarkable capacity to doze back off in the mornings. At night, I'm lousy at getting to sleep, but in the mornings, I can go back to sleep repeatedly even with the alarm going off.

This morning I did that with both the characteristic markers of such things: incorporating NPR stories into my dreams and dreaming that I'm busy getting ready for work. No, it wasn't the White House press conference in my living room that woke me up. Instead it was that I was making coffee at home rather than drinking from the pot at the office. I mean, if I'm already running late, why would I stop and make coffee? One quick question about the illogical nature of my dream and POP! Suddenly awake with a jolt of adrenaline.

But the coffee was really good when I got to the office.
