After class this morning I was chatting with the other teachers and we were talking about how early we wake up. We all said the same thing, "5 if I have to wash my hair, 5:30 if I don't." Although one teacher was 4:30 or 5, depending. Which, for the record, if teaching seminary meant I had to wake up at 4:30 it would not take long before I checked out the Catholics.
Anyway, it struck me how many extra hours of sleep men get over a lifetime simply because they don't have to wake up earlier to do their hair. They don't have to factor in how long it will take to wash, condition, dry, mousse, gel, round brush, straighten, curl, crimp, braid, and tousle every single morning. We're probably talking years of extra sleep! This is a racket. I'm shaving my head.
