Give Credit Where Credit is Due

Somehow, I woke up at 3 this morning. My dad thumping around the house getting ready for a business trip most likely had something to do with that. Did I go back to sleep? Of course not. As much as I tried, all attempts to go back to sleep were unsuccessful. My body's just ridiculous like that.

So, as I lied awake and stared at the ceiling I thought I'd take a mid-morning nap before class. That would be unsuccessful since mom apparently has a hair appointment and someone has to watch my evil siblings until our family friends get here to go to the pool- at 11:30. My class is at 12:30. So then my next thought was skip class and sleep. Again, not gonna happen since I sort of need to go to class so I don't get behind. Once that's over, I have an hour and a half to kill before I have to go to work. Ugh! Not to mention I'm closing at work. Insert double grunt of frustration here.

I tried all remedies to go to sleep: read the news, Facebook, Twitter (so glad I've deleted my account on Myspace.) However, getting on the computer seemed to wake me up. So I read some of Pride and Prejudice (I seriously don't remember the last time it took me this long to read a 300 page book.) Problem is I already read the hysterical proposal of Mr. Collins and am resisting the urge to skip to the end just to get myself a dose of Proposal from Mr. Darcy, take 2.

Speaking of which, I was in math Tuesday reading my book (my brain had shut off all possibilities of learning by this time) and unknowingly came upon the chapter of Mr. Collin's proposal. Before I could shut the book I was stifling laughter, specifically when he says, " I am not now to learn that it is usual with young ladies to reject the addresses of the man whom they secretly meant to accept, when he first applies for their favor; and that sometimes the refusal is repeated a second or even a third time."

I find so much humor in that; in fact I pursed my lips together so nothing would peep out of me. To his credit, he was quite persistent. But I honestly think that is my favorite part.

Sorry your day sucks. Hopefully tonight you will sleep well and enjoy your day tomorrow a bit more. I think it is really funny that you were reading Pride and Prejudice in math class...not so math orientated.

I wouldn't have been able to laugh quietly since I just laughed out loud here. :) Persistence...

You forgot to go back and write how you slept through your class.
