Quotes For When You’ve Hit Snooze For The Fifth Time

Amy Pilkington 31 Jul 2020

On a work day, my first alarm is set for 5:30. If I actually get up, I will have plenty of time to casually make coffee, get myself cleaned up, and even read for a bit before I need to settle down and get some work done.

Admittedly, I follow that first alarm’s advice only, like, ten percent of the time. More often, I tell it to shut up — literally, since it’s voice-activated — and roll back over to doze until the last possible minute.

I have to be really careful, though, since I also have two dogs.

But those people who make the effort to get up and work out? Those people are crazy.
