I was up, showered, dressed, and all prettied up by 5:15 this morning. Seriously. Stick with me, here.
Off I went, down the road to work while it was still good and dark out. I wore my sunglasses anyway, was first in line to get my mocha, and slammed it down by the time I made it to work at 6:32am. Plenty of time/caffeine to get my act together before the scheduled 7:45am demo. Oh I may very well look like one of those people today, but I assure you that I am not. I was clearly not consulted when this meeting was scheduled.
I managed to somehow appear semi-conscious while my boss and I sat in the meeting room; pads on lap and pens in hand. I was raring to go. Ok ok, not raring. But I was there! And I was awake! 7:45... 8:00... wonder what's taking everyone else so long 8:05... 8:10... 8:15... Hm. Are we in the right room? 8:16... 8:17... it's starting to get awfully uncomfortable in here, just me and my boss. With absolutely nothing to talk about. 8:17...8:18.... Is this room getting smaller?...She gets up to go investigate, just in time to avoid the only thing I could conjure to discuss. Whew.
She returns seconds later to let me know that the meeting is tomorrow. At 7:45am.
"No biggie", she says and shrugs.
