Remember during the ’08 elections, the primaries when Hillary and Obama were going at Hillary had that commerical about who would do best when the phone rang at 3am? Now, they were thinking about a national security issue. ”Russia has invaded Puerto Rico.”(see spoof here)
Then and now I think Hillary could do a good job in the middle of the night so I was wondering if she could answer my phone when it rings at 4am, as it did last night. It also rang at 4:16am, 4:31am, 4:40am, 4:52. It’s scary to be woken up in the middle of the night. Rather it should be, but I wasn’t rattled, I was just tired and pissed. See, I knew there wasn’t crisis.
“Cousin Floyd” was agitated. New parents know the sleep deprivation of a newborn. But, grown up people can be more exhausting. THERE IS NOTHING CUTE ABOUT THEM. I don’t can’t have another Black Smoke day, but I’m exhausted. When Rex kept me up with his stomach bug we did spend parts of the day cuddled up on the couch watching cartoons. Now, I think I need to sleep and or find a support group.
But, most urgently, How do you block a number from calling your phone? Would Hillary know? Do you? Because I can’t function like this and my kids can’t either. Vivien was so upset at being woken up and I don’t blame here. It’s hard to have compassion at 4am, and 4:16, 4:31, 4:40…
Then the texting started. That’s easier to turn off.
