I guess...

you don't have to be:

at 5 o'clock in the morning
before the sun comes up,
while the moon still hangs in the sky

AND your 2nd cup of coffee hasn't kicked in yet

while your somewhat grumpy.

I guess you can be
a 14 year old who is young but, tired, forgetful,
 and unfocused because it is 5 o'clock in the morning.
Up because you are a dedicated
swimmer and need to get your butt to practice,

So you write notes
and put them on the floor where you will step over
them when you head out the door.

Pretty good strategy, I'd say.
I sure would die if I forgot my underwear, pants and bra...

I LOVE it! She must have picked up some smarts along the way. I picked up MY teenage daughter from school for a doctor's appointment & we had to go home first because in her 5 a.m. delirium she had forgotten to wear panties. Yep. Ready for college.

That post, and Carolyn's comment cracked me up.
Sometimes I forget to wear panties, too... I mean, not so much "forget" but... well, you know.
