And then, there's the owl...
Such an odd-looking fellow. They always seem to be on a secret mission or up to no good, at the very least.
Well, there you have it - Brian and me in a nutshell. I'm the rooster, and he's the owl. I wake with the sun (actually, before the sun if the truth be known). And, when I'm up, I feel that the entire rest of the world should be up and attem', too. From the time my feet hit the floor in the mornings, I quickly busy myself with the day's tasks, and I'm ready to call it a day around 9:00pm. Even if I'm not particularly sleepy, I can assure you that I won't turn down going to bed at that early hour.
Brian is the polar opposite. He's the odd-looking fellow :). Of course, I'm only joking. He's the handsome one, but the one who always seems to be on a secret mission to keep me awake when all I want to do is go to sleep. The one who I can't pull outta bed for less than a million dollars in the mornings, the one who comes up with crazy schemes just as the sun is making its departure on the horizon.
So, I guess this is another area of give and take in a marriage - unless you operate on the same clocks, that is. For us, we hardly ever go to bed without each other, but we do have to trade off late and early bedtimes. And, I'm not sad to say that I win more than he does.
After all, it just makes good sense to go to bed early :)
