After hitting the snooze button 20 times already, I bit the bullet and barely flopped out of bed. 7:00am, seriously? While I am not a morning person in general, being awake that early felt a bit extreme compared to my normal routine of getting out of bed closer to Noon. Making sure to grab my 20oz Coca-Cola, I waited for my ride to Brown Deer. I jumped in the backseat ofmy sister Alison’s car, with my brother-in-law Frank riding shotgun.
“Why are you drinking Coke?” My sister asked, as she gave me a sideways look through the rearview mirror.
