From Ben Allen:
"The morning just has a different feel to it regardless of whether or not you have slept. Like I said, chicken wings at 7:45 in the morning in your time zone constitute breakfast wings. If you stay up binge drinking all night long and hit up a nice meal at Waffle House, is it not still breakfast?"
Good point Ben, however first let me correct you. You said "IF you stay up all night long and hit up a nice meal at waffle house..." I think you meant WHEN this happens, because it seems to happen a lot with our crowd. Neverthenontheless, when we do this, we do it one (or two...fine, maybe even 3) times in a week, but the Dracula schedule is a constant daily thing for me. I am on this schedule pretty much all the time. This has caused me problems for example: if i am lucky enough to sleep from 9-5 which rarely happens, when I meet B.A. and Riddle for trivia at 8pm and have a beer, this has the same feel as drinking at noon (see My Life, 2003-2005), it does not feel like it did to have a beer at 8pm when I kept hours that were closer to normal. It doesn't feel weird to eat Chicken Wings at 745am, but it was hella strange meeting Brittany for "lunch" at 3pm... I felt like I should have been ordering an omelet instead.
My solution is this: quit your day job (since none of your friends seem to want your services anyways) and become a "night mortgage broker" so that you can see things through the eyes of the unfortunate people like me.
Does anyone else have any opinions on this topic? This blog somehow gets a lot of hits and it would be nice to hear from more than just a few of yall. Click the link where it shows the number of comments and you can post a response.
