It’s a common scenario for me: I’m sleeping late.
All of a sudden, the phone rings. Reluctantly, I get out of bed to answer it.
“Hi, Lia, it’s so-and-so. I’m sorry, did I wake you up?”
Yes, you did wake me up. I was sleeping so comfortably. Maybe I was even dreaming. And your call–important or not–woke me up.
But do I tell them this? Or say, “No, of course not, I’ve been up for a while.”
I guess it depends on who calls. If it’s my best friend or my mom, I might say that they disturbed my slumber and I will kindly call them back at an hour when I am more alert. If it’s the queen of England, I might leave it to myself.
Moral of the story: Don’t call me too early.
Moral of the story #2: I should just turn off my phone at night.
