The Cruelty of Sleep Deprivation

Setting: Wee morning hours, my bedroom.

Characters: Me, Mike, and Piglet

Piglet: Waaaaaah! Waaaaaah! Waaaaaah!

Me: [poke Mike aggressively in back] What time is it?

Mike: Six thirty.

Me: WHOOP! Are you serious! Hey! Hey! He slept through the night! He finally slept through the night! High five! [bouncing enthusiastically on bed]

Mike: [burrows under covers] The transportation costs will be too high. The project won't work.

Me: [pause in bouncing] Huh?

Mike: [Sits up on elbow] The transportation.....oh. Piglet's up. [shakes head]

Me: [suspicious] What time is it?

Mike: Three fifteen.

Me: [burrow under covers in fit of depression] You freakshow. Go change Piglet's diaper.

Piglet: Waaaaaaaaaah! Waaaaaaaaah!
