Morning and Work

​Waking up in the morning is usually tough business for me, considering that I just woke up from a near death experience, and I can’t take any consolation in knowing what happened within that time frame. If I need a reason to pray, it’s the sole reason I do mine in the morning.

I used to go jogging after prayers, emphasis on the “used to” don’t ask me why I stopped. But It had to do with the finding of the body of a dead jogger some years ago and I can’t really say if that’s the reason or it’s the Jos weather that made me lazy. Look, cold silver droplets of rain has been threatening the skies.

Anyways, I am not a morning person. I drink tea to start my day, yet I am permanently exhausted. I scroll through Twitter and Instagram like devotion, post “Happy Birthday” messages on Facebook because I detest “HBD’s” and I don’t run even if I am running late.

Mornings are for quiet, peace and coffee

I don’t get how some people wake up all “good morning” and stuff, don’t you want to know what happened in between? Are you not a bit curious?

Oh well, that’s just me. My mornings are taken care of by silhouettes, imaginations and wishful thinking. I strive to appear full of life when I go to work.

If you’re a permanently exhausted person in the morning, try drinking water you might be dehydrated. Heaven knows why that doesn’t work for me.

I have to insist that you take your breakfast even if you are running late. I am sure you have read the story about the indispensable worker who got afflicted with ulcer and died; and someone else took his post. You haven’t? Well too bad, I had an awesome English teacher.

I don’t like you much if you wake up all chirpy and excited in the morning. Don’t mind me, I am a hater and I have no excuse except that you’re a better person than I am.

This is just me wishing you a wonderful day ahead in my own little way.

May the rains pour in their season. May our reasons for not wanting to go to work on a Friday like this come to pass! May we grab the umbrella stationed behind the door and dash out into the rain to do that which makes us happy. I hope you don’t forget your umbrella in the commercial vehicle as I was so fun of doing.
Thank God It’s Raining?

  1. Mornings are for mornings, coffee helps.

    You try to be relaxed and well rested but alot of excesses may be related to the occassion.
    A slight hangover for example, yeah that, because you probably had an extra shot of your favourite poison while celebrating friday eve. These days you owe no one reasons for certain actions.

    It could be staying up late to catch up on all recent episodes that favorite tv serie or Insomnia. I dont grumble to that anymore.

    The media is helpful in the mornings, fresh feeds.

    Talking work and early morning rains, chores are never get out of hand: the poultry, pudding for the puppies, fresh vegetable for the Rabbits and chilli pepper for the noisy Kanari who’s two weeks tomorrow.
    They come next to coffee/media. If you own a car with no porch the rains probably helped out.

    Rains can be fun, cuddling as another example or too much lazy time on #AccidentalWorker

    i’m out!
