i’ve been up since 05:45 today (after a somewhat short shut-eye), and this was my first (and extremely slow) train of thought:
- car reverses in our (very secluded) driveway. i look out the window
“why is there a car backing up here at 05:45 in the morning?”
“it could be peter picking me up for work, but he said he’d be here by quarter to six. don’t think he would be AN HOUR EARLY.”
i look at the alarm clock: 05:45
pause. looking out the window again.
i actually go look at a memo i wrote to myself, which says “pickup: 05:45”.
“05:45 IS quarter to six!”
