4 Am

sometimes i have gymnastics training in the morning. so i am awake and people know i am, so they can call me and i love to be able to rely on people like that, so i like to be able to do it for others. :)

I disagree with the "always an accomplishment" Amz. I used to work as a substitute school teacher. The gig meant if a teacher woke up at 4 a.m. too sick to come in, they could call an automated system for a substitute. If they liked a particular substitute, they could tell the system who they wanted. <br /><br /><br />
The automated system would start calling substitute teachers at 5 a.m.<br /><br /><br />
There was this one inner city middle school band director who thought I was the neatest guy ever. He was going through a bad period in his life, so he wanted me to fill in for him fairly often. One afterbiib, I'd called the automated system and put in for a day off. <br /><br /><br />
Four in the morning the next day, I get a phone call from him.<br /><br /><br />
"This better be important," I said in a sleepy fog. <br /><br /><br />
It was important to him. I went back to sleep. <b> First</b> I had to explain I'd set up with the system not to call me. It was case of "get somebody else" for his assembled mob of raggamuffins and future felons. <br />
<br /><br /> Next time I filled in for him, one of his charming charges looked at me and moaned "Why <B>you</b>?

of course i dont always want to her from people that early, honestly i like my seep better,. but doing something thoughtful and helpful for somebody else is always an accomplishment.

Isn't there a point when you <b> don't </b> want to hear from people? It's hard for me to forget grocery shopping at 2 a.m. That was the hour the locals required the bars to close and I found myself with the zombie drunks trying to buy brains. <br />The supermarkets were also supposed to stop selling alcoholic drinks until 6 a.m. The zombie drunks would stagger up at 2:30-3 a.m. and try to pull a fast one for suitcase of Bud. <br /><br />
Do I want phone calls at the zombie hour? Let the answering machine get it.

i don't mind, i feel better during the day when i don't sleep in.
