This morning, while waking up to my alarm clock, I was still in a semi-dream state and to me the task of waking up seemed hugely, gigantically, monumental (more so than just normally getting up). It was like climbing Mt. Everest or eating a 10lb burger in less than five minutes! So upon actually sitting up in bed, I thrust both my arms into the air like a winner.
But no cheers greeted me.
Then I realized I was awake and that no one was cheering me.
And I was sad.
