Morning People

I am not a morning person. I used to be a night owl, but not so much anymore. I saw something on social media that fits me perfectly — I’m not a morning person or a night owl but more of a permanently exhausted pigeon.

I have nothing against actual morning people. They can wake up at 4 am fully alive and ready to go. They can go on their early morning runs and do their workouts before they go into the office. They can be cheerful and chipper all they want. Just don’t come to me and expect a full conversation before I’ve had my first cup of coffee, because it won’t happen.

Lately, I think there needs to be a day in between work days for me to recover from the previous work day. I need a day to catch up on all my streaming shows, to read all my books, to drink all that coffee to get ready for the next day.

There’s a verse in the Bible that speaks about morning people: “One who blesses his friend with a loud voice early in the morning, It will be considered a curse to him” (Proverbs 27:14, NASB).

That may be my new favorite Bible verse.

If you see me early in the morning without my gigantic Death Star cup of coffee in hand, please be kind. You can speak to me, but hold off on any serious conversations that require thought until after that first morning coffee. Please and thank you.
