100 Words - Bonus Time

I love it when I wake up at 5AM and have to pee. It doesn’t happen often. When it does, I get up and pee, then go back to bed. I’m alone in the dark. At 5AM there are no todo lists. No chores. No tasks. No responsibilities. It’s just me and my unencumbered brain. Then I fall asleep.

Then I wake up, feeling like I’ve wasted all that time between 5 and now. Like sleep isn’t the highest expression of human existence. There are things I could have worried about. All those things are left floating till tomorrow morning.
