I’ll have to agree with this. My boyfriend is always lovely when he wakes up, no matter at what hour. If I wake him up in the middle of the night, he’s fine, he doesn’t even sound sleepy, it’s strange.
Me, on the other hand, hehehe… erm. Let’s use two nights ago as an example: We went to sleep a bit earlier than usual, this means for me a harder time to fall asleep, as I am a bit of a night owl. That night it took me almost two hours to fall asleep, worse than usual, so I fell asleep at about 2am. My boyfriend was a bit nervous that day, because he was going to a new client, so he wakes me at 4:30 am by tapping my lightly on my back.
“I think I’m feeling ill”
“Oh no” I think. Adrenaline rush, body temperature rises, heart racing.
“I don’t know, I’m not sure I am feeling ill.”
“Either you are ill or you aren’t, what do you feel?” <- insert slightly annoyed tone
“I don’t know if my belly hurts”
“How do you not know if your belly hurts? Either it hurts or it doesn’t.”
“I don’t know cuz I’m still half asleep.”
“Well yeah, so am I.”
Took me another hour to fall asleep and get over the adrenaline rush and the annoyance. 5:30 am, I fall asleep again.
7:30 am, he wakes up for work. I wake up when he gets out of bed. Inner mutter. Back to sleep. Wake up at 8:40. Inner mutter.
But then I’m fine again, takes me a while though. And I find all of this story oddly funny and cute.
