Snooze wars

There are a lot of things that are great about living with your boyfriend. You always have someone to talk to, someone to watch movies with, someone to cook with, and let’s not forget, someone to snuggle. There are, however, times where you wish the bastard would just move the hell out already.

In our relationship, that time is exactly between 6 and 7 am.

Let me elaborate. We don’t get up at the same time every morning. We get up at almost the same time every morning. When I work early shifts I get up at 6.35 am, which means that I time my first snooze to 6.25 am to give me ten minutes of blissfully undisturbed sleep. Marius gets up at 6.50 am, and times his first snooze to 6.30 am.

Yes. You don’t have to be a rocket surgeon (the super-breed mutant of the rocket scientist and the brain surgeon) to see the problem here, do you?

See, we have a disagreement. Marius isn’t bothered by the surplus snoozes that he gets from my snoozing schedule. He feels that our snoozing schedules are completely separate entities – apples and oranges, if you will. Meanwhile, his snoozes bother the fuck out of me. Let me illustrate.

06.25

06.30

06.35 

And so my morning is ruined. So ruined that not even tea can save it. Not even bunnies could save it. The only thing that might be able to save these mornings would be poodle puppies, but that would have to be pure, undiluted, liquefied poodle puppies injected straight into my veins.

I still love him though. Snooze-hogging bastard.

  1. ååå snoozing, et velkjent problem. Jeg hater nemlig snooze, men kjæresten elsker det. Ergo ødelegger det min morgen også… Jeg vil sove så lenge som mulig og så stå opp, ikke sette vekkeklokken på ti min før tiden så jeg kan sove lenger, da sover jeg skikkelig dårlig de ti minuttene…

    Men han er fin for det!

    Gledelig jul!

  2. Åh, shit. Nå fikk jeg dårlig samvittighet! Her er det dessverre omvendt. Men jeg vet ikke hvordan jeg skal klare å fikse det. Jeg er bare helt elendig til å komme meg opp, og etter en stund – så hører jeg ikke alarmen lenger. He he :)

    • Nei uffda! Kanskje du skulle hatt en sånn lampe som vekker deg med lys som blir sterkere og sterkere, jeg har hørt at de er populære :D
