Fun To Watch The Sunrise

(Monday 18 August 2014) by Rick Clot
Okay, so here's something I did a few nights ago that I haven't done since my college days and, hopefully, I won't have to do it again. I pulled an "all nighter". Actually, I'm lying. I don't know that I EVER pulled an all nighter in my short stint in college. Maybe that's why it was a short stint. Anyway, back to the subject at hand. I got a call from a friend last week who asked me if I could drive him and his wife to the airport on Saturday. I agreed but what I didn't immediately know but found out as the conversation proceeded was that their flight was scheduled to leave at 6:00AM and they wanted to be picked up at 3:45AM. Brought back flashbacks of the movie Good Morning Vietnam. "Hey, it's 0345 - What's the 0 stand for - OH MY GOD IT'S EARLY". Up to that point I had already agreed to do this and couldn't very well change my mind when they gave me the good news about the time. So the previous night I went out to do my part time driving job around 6:30PM and worked till 2:00AM, got home at 3:00 just long enough to splash some water in my eyes and go pick up my friends at 3:45. And my eyes gratefully thanked me for that too. I got home from the airport run around 5:30. The sun was coming up. Went to bed and slept to 11:00. What an oddball day that was. I actually went to bed about the time I normally get up. I had jet lag all weekend and I wasn't even on a jet.

Until Next Time,
Sleepin' in Surprise,
