    Rude awakenings

    I love starting my morning by waking to find out that I have been hitting the snooze button for 90 minutes when 20 minutes is the norm.

    I always enjoyed it when I'm sleeping on my back and the german shepard leaped up onto the bed with her paws landing squarely on my groin

    How about the cat, with untrimmed claws, landing on you in the middle of the night.

    I love being woken up by my wife in the middle of night and being told that she hears a noise. I would rather sleep through a burglary than interrupt one.

    I hate it when the police hassle me when I'm trying to sleep on the sidewalk.

    Yeah, what's up with "Buddy, you can't sleep here" when I was obviously sound asleep. How can they solve crimes if they're that unobservant?

    Last time that happened to me I was handcuffed to a homeless man...and he was wearing my clothes.

    What a coincidence. Last time that happened to me I was handcuffed to a naked man.

    If you stopped dressing like a homeless man and sleeping next to naked people maybe the cops would stop harassing you. If all the homeless people wore suits I bet the cops would just be confused.

    I was camping with a bunch of friends, and I awoke to a horse munching on my hair.

    When I was at summer camp a skunk got into the cabin, 12 girls shrieking

    A high school friend of mine never liked to get up in the mornings. His mother put a bag of glass marbles in the freezer overnight and poured them into his bed the next morning. He woke up in a hurry.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)
