A Bracing Way to Wake

Mary stood at the edge of the bed, telling me to wake up. I was awake, it was about 6:00 a.m., and was being slow about leaving the warm covers. Mary saw my water bottle by the bed and kindly offered it to me, "Here, Mama! Drink this!"

I hadn't properly latched the lid when I last took a midnight sip.

So, cold water poured fast out of the fat, one-inch diameter spout, soaking my face and pillow. Now there is a way to wake up fast!

Sweet Girl was only trying to be friendly.


  1. She is so sweet!
    My water by the bed got spilled so many times that I finally moved it to a distant table :(

  2. That's one way to wake up for sure! I guess you'll never leave the top off/loose again?
