I wish I could tell you why. I’ve always been nocturnal. Nowadays bedtime is somewhere between 4:00 and 5:00 AM. Much of my adult life has been spent working nights. Others complain. It’s my comfort zone.
Maybe my folks know why? I remember being like this as a teenager. I’m not sure how I did it in the extremely close quarters of our Queens apartment.
It’s not hard to figure out this time of day is not prime. There’s nothing on TV that’s live. There’s lots that’s throwaway–time filler stuff. If you only knew some of the infomercials that air this time-of-day!
My friends on the West Coast get to hear from me. Is that a good or bad thing?
Most nights I’m still awake after they go to sleep!
Life was good when my friend Farrell was in Singapore. Separated by half-a-world (12 time zones) I was around for his afternoon. We chatted online nearly every day.
When people hear about my hours they’re not as surprised by my bedtime as by my wake-up, usually just after noon.
