...you must do the following the next day:
(1) drag yourself out of bed only when the clock strikes a time after which it will be physically impossible to fit in all the necessary getting ready activities and still get a decent parking space at work.
(2) apply more powder and blush than usual in an effort to actually LOOK ALIVE.
(3) don't even bother to do more than pull a comb through your rat's nest of a head of hair and carefully coil it up into a fetching bun.
(4) choke down some coffee.
(5) try not to wonder how the baby appears so happy and well rested. Some things just defy explanation.
