Why haven't you gone to bed yet??

My nice doodle of the thin mint that I was holding was ruined by the clear drops of tear. I was going to have to face my feelings eventually.

“Hi honey, what are you doing up this early?” My mom was getting ready to go to work.

“um…” I was going to be in trouble.

“You mean, why haven’t I gone to bed yet?”

I saw the shock hit her. It must have really been early, cause it took her a while to grasp the meaning of what I had said.

“You really need to get you sleep. tired people just can’t function as well.

“I guess you’re right”

I was asleep before I landed in my bed.
