Friend Fail

So to preface, I should say that I am kind of awesome. 

This past weekend my friend Octavia came to visit me in Indianapolis.  We had tickets to see Jimmy Fallon.  It was super fun.

Anyway, that’s not the point of this post.  This is the good part of the story…

I am so not a “morning person.”  When made to wake up before I want to I am usually somewhat dazed, confused, and even more clumsy than normal.  Additionally, my brain and body both seem to move in slow motion; meaning I say things before I think them through and it takes me forever to actually get ready. 

This morning was no exception.  My alarm went off at 6:30 and I stumbled out of bed, over to my desk, and shut the noise off.  I then stood thinking to myself, “Self, there is someone else in your room that you are supposed to wake up right now.”

And that’s when things got confusing.  I could not, for the life of me, remember who I was supposed to wake up.  I stood there squinting in the darkness trying to make out the shape of the other person in my room, to no avail. 

And then my mouth, which got ahead of my brain, said, “Heather, you need to wake up.” (Heather was my roommate for two years so, I mean, really this was a reasonable guess, just not the right one, not the right one at all.)

Then in my head I think, “Doh, nope, that’s wrong, that's 100% wrong, Heather lives down the street, that was so the wrong name.”  As Octavia laughs and says, “That’s okay Kyley, I’m awake.”

“Hi Tavia,” I say, “I’m going to go shower now.”

(Side note, I then sat waiting for the hot water to get warm for like 30 seconds before I realized I’d turned on the cold tap, seriously, NOT a morning person)

Yeah, I think it’s good that Tavia and I have been friends for so long because that was just an epic fail.  On the plus side, Heather thought it was funny.
