Three Instances When It Is Okay To Wake Me Up
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

As many of my readers know, I am a day person. During the day, I am normally active. I run, and I do Pilates. I am also busy with my online publishing. I am eager to have followers and to earn money from my blog. Therefore, when I do finally go to bed, I do not want to be bothered. If somebody woke me up, I would likely be irritable. However, there are three situations when I would want someone to get me up out of bed.

First, I would want someone to wake me if the house was on fire. If no one woke me up, I would die. Since I value my life, I would want to wake up so that I could get out of the house, escape the fire, and live. A fire is not the only time when I would want someone to wake me up, however.

Another instance in which I would want someone to get me up out of bed is if the house was flooding. In this situation, I would need to grab items that I did not want damaged by the water, such as my computer, my radio, important documents, and my dolls. Then, after my valuables were safe, I would need to mop up the water. Once the water was cleaned up and I knew that there were no snakes hiding somewhere in the house and waiting to slither out and bite me, I could then go back to bed. After I had gotten some sleep, I would get up and clean the house to avoid getting sick from the floodwater.

Third, I would want someone to alert me if we had a burglar in the house. A break-in is scary, and I would want to be safe. If I was asleep, I would be unaware of what was going on. Also, I might alert the burglar with my snoring. If I was awake, I would know to be quiet, and I would be able to react as I should.

I would love to meet Pink, Maroon 5, James Patterson, Meredith Vieira, and other famous people that I admire. I would love to get their autographs and pick them up as readers who are following my blog. However, if I were coming out of a sound sleep, I would have no preparation for a meeting like this. I would be very likely to say something stupid and embarrass myself. Fortunately, the people I admire also need their rest. Writers need their sleep so that they can write more, and singers need to be rested so that they can keep up with their tour schedule. Therefore, it is unlikely that they will be stopping by to meet me. If we come home at a reasonable time and go to bed, we can all get some sleep and dream sweet dreams so that we can wake up in the morning and be fabulous.


Street Talk

Fire and Flood I get--but why would you want to be awake during a robbery? I could see if it was a serial killer or something, but a burglar would hear you snoring and just burgle and leave--they normally try not to wake anyone, so you'd be better off sleeping through it. Thanks for sharing!
