I couldn’t set my mind to work today. I had a lousy night’s sleep, lying around for ages, tossing and turning. I think I slept too much when I was ill last week. I also woke up in the middle of the night, I suspect when the person that steals blankets for a living who happens to lie next to me, had to go to the bathroom.
But the worst thing was waking up:
She: ‘Oh crap, it’s 7.05 already. You’ve forgotten to set your alarm clock. Wake up!’
Me: ‘Mmmph.’ Just great, I think, after such a night a miss my bus and train. I raise my head to make eye-contact with my alarm clock. Wait a minute, I didn’t forget to set it…
Me: It’s not five past seven, it’s five past six in the morning.
She: Oh, yes. You’re right... Sorry.
Thirty-five more minutes left to sleep, but of course I didn’t get a moment’s shut-eye anymore.
