SoCS — Orange Juice

Don’tcha hate it when you wake up in the middle of the night and you’re thirsty and the water beside your bed is all gone because you were a greedy ice-eater and the bathroom sink is clear on the other side of the room and you just can’t go back to sleep because you’re too thirsty to sleep and for some reason you think orange juice might be the answer to all your problems but the refrigerator is even farther away than the bathroom sink?

Oh, but orange juice. Mmm.
The world inside your earplugs is loud with orange juice. Your breaths bellow oraaaaangejuice, oraaaaangejuice, oraaaaangejuice. Your heart beats orange.juice. orange.juice.
Now your steps — orange. juice. orange. juice. orange. juice.
You’re a citrus zombie.

The stove explains it all — It is not the middle of the night. It is morning. 6:12 in the morning.
It’s Saturday. You drink your orange juice with a smile. The orange juice is even more delicious when you’re going back to bed.

    Oh I just love a Happy ending. OJ And back to sleep. I always keep a gaggle of old juice bottles of water in the fridge,so I have a never ending supply of liquid available. I always have a bottle handy,awake or asleep. I consume a lot of liquid daily,and not always alcoholic. Glad you were able to sleep in.

    I get that way about wanting a drink of water (which I almost always have in a bottle by the bed for this kind of occasion) but I KNOW most assuredly that if I drink that water, I’ll be awake in an hour to pee. But I’m oh-so-thirsty and it’s all I can think about. I usually just drink the damn water and then get up an hour later to pee…but it could take me an hour of not sleeping and thinking about the water before I make the decision to do so.

    I don’t think I could go back to sleep after juice. It’s too deeply associated with up.

    Sleeping in rocks! If I make it to 9am I’m lucky. Between the dog moaning and the kid exclaiming, “mommy I’m hungry!”, and me lamenting that I am too and wish she or the dog would make breakfast for a change, I’m up doing the usual routine whether I want to or not.

    Glad you got your juice and a few extra zzzz

    Getting up to have the oj sounded like a good idea, but 6am is still the middle of the night. 🙂

  9. My hat is off to you if you can get up at 6:15, walk to the kitchen, down a glass of OJ, and go back to sleep. I would be up for the day but I’m an early riser. 🙂
