Rats! Episode 35 – Why do you do that?

Ah, yes, I created an arcing storyline for the comic. Mick was a representation of a lot of people I met during my freshman year, all of whom said, “Why the hell would you want to do that?!” every time I explained that I had to be up at 5:30AM most mornings for VTCC activities. I don’t think I ever really gave them a good explanation back then, but if asked now, I would say… um, I’ll get back to you on that one.

Seriously, I am not a morning person. I hate waking up and feeling all groggy and half-dead. And then to have to throw on a uniform, drag down to the company area, and sound the call for BRC on top of that? Ugh. Worse was having to get up at oh-dark-thrity to walk all the way across campus on a freezing winter morning to run stadium steps with the Army ROTC group. I swore when I graduated that I would never get up early again for anything. So these days I’m usually up by 5AM.

Yeah, you laugh, but just you wait. If you’re in the VTCC, your days of getting up at the ass-crack of dawn are just starting, pal. One day you too will be old and still dragging your butt out of bed, wishing that someone would come along and invent the personal-use caffeine IV. We’ll see how hard you laugh then 😉
