|A.M./P.M. - No difference|
The only time I don’t mind getting up early is to catch a flight to Paris. That’s it. There’s no other reason in the world that I’m happy to be conscious and out on the street at this hour. It’s downright spooky.
This morning I had a 7:00 AM video conference at work which is why I am now privy to early morning work habits. The conference was being conducted on European time so a very civilized hour for those attending from the EU. For me, not so much.
ANYWAY…..after the video conference (which, thankfully, wasn’t two-way showing off my performance of non-stop yawning), I was very hungry. My stomach was now all confused and thought it was time for lunch. See? It’s not healthy messing around with the internal clock! Restaurants were serving breakfast so I was forced to have bacon and eggs and we know that’s not good either. (OK, I could have had yoghurt, fruit or oatmeal….but yuck….not when I could smell bacon sizzling on the pan).
I have a deep respect for people that get up at the crack of dawn to go to work. Well, maybe ‘respect’ isn’t the right word. Curiosity maybe. I can see early morning calls for farmers, people who make the doughnuts and bus drivers. When the sun is rising in Paris and the Department of Sanitation employees are hard at work, some restaurants are just finishing up the dinner seating from the night before. All these people have good reasons for being up early. Street cleaning a must…..finishing dinner a must.

Sunrise is beautiful. I’ve seen photos of it and it’s almost as nice as the sunset.
Morning people frown on night owls which seems to be the only politically correct prejudice these days. In some circles, early birds are called "A-people" and night owls are called "B-people". Who decided that?
One thing’s for sure, you can’t convince or convert a morning person to a night owl or vice versa. Don’t even try!
