Pie at 4:30 am

It’s part of what comes with becoming a grown-up. It’s a liberty, a privilege, a rite of passage. And tonight, it’s key lime.
Sometimes I come home from work exhausted, usually on the days I’ve been working with kids. Yesterday, it was a 31-degree summer day I spent working with kids and biking 19 km between home, kids’ day camp, office and home again. Needless to say, the day’s events had taken a toll on my energy level.
Upon my return I fixed a plate of sustenance and sat down for some Dr. Who. One episode in, I found myself craving a more recumbent position. I didn’t get very far into the second episode before I was out cold.
So this is how I’ve fallen into my bizarre semi-nocturnal pattern of waking between 4 and 5 am and falling asleep closer to the 6-8 pm range.
For the record, this is by no means a complaint. It’s what I’m doing all week.
