Preparing for St. Louis
It’s three days until I leave for St. Louis, and I’m sorry, but I have to talk about sleep…
My flight is at 11:15am, which means I’ll have to leave for the airport (Newark: ugh) at 8:45am, which means I’ll have to wake up by 7:45am, which is basically the middle of the night for me, so I’ve been forcing myself to wake up one hour earlier every day. On Monday, I slept until 2pm. (That was smart.) On Tuesday, I got up around 12:45pm. On Wednesday, with great difficulty, I got up during the 11 o’clock hour. On Thursday, the alarm mocked me 10:45am. Yesterday, I somehow managed to put my feet on the floor at 9:58am. Right now, it’s 12:26am on Saturday. I need to go to bed soon, and I need to wake up while “8” is still the first digit on my clock. This is totally draining, but it’s better than being exhausted on Game Day.
Meanwhile, I’ve printed the rosters for the Cardinals and Pirates, and I have one question: Who ARE these guys?
