What’s the story morning glory?
If you were to ask me this first thing in the morning there is a 90% chance I won’t answer you.
The majority of the reason why I wake up in the morning is because it means I can finally eat breakfast, which for the record is the highlight of my day. Nothing brings me as much joy as deciding what to eat for breakfast except maybe the first bite of my oats/waffle/pancakes/muffin/omelet.
I like to savor my mornings, not chat about last night’s shenanigans, your Freudian interpretation of your dreams or today’s plans. I prefer not to speak unless required to.
Ironically I hate the nighttime. Nothing gives me more anxiety than the day drawing to a close, yet I’m as chatty as they come when the sun begins to set.
A possible compensatory action? I’ll leave the analysis to you.
