Hmmmm. a puzzle for sure. Soon, it will change too. Seems I will be getting up at 4am before the break of dawn. Good more than different I would suppose. I wake up slow. I probably smile about 3rd or 4th, yet that may be because as you mentioned there isn't any foot flirting or nudging going on seeking a smile.
Upon awakening I orientate myself as to which planet I am on, since sometimes it is that one and not this one, odd I know, yet it be. Think KPAX or Scotty beams me there instead of home sometimes. I'll have a talk with him some day or maybe EleL of Fleet Admiralty, the best navigator known of the Athena quadrant and more, may have the answer.
Yet, that does not answer the question. What goes through my mind when I awaken first thing in the morning is two things almost simultaneously. I made it back safer and what day is this?
