I really shouldn't complain, but I will.

Here’s one of the difficulties of my life.

The lovely and talented la_sherazade is working on her dissertation. A big part of her process requires her to be basically nocturnal (she catnaps both day and night between work sessions). She is also a gourmand. She likes to cook wonderful things about the same time that I need to go to sleep.

Like now.

I really need to be asleep in about 20 minutes. I have to be back at work in 9 hours and it is an hour drive. But my parents brought back apples from the mountains this weekend, so she is making an apple pie. I won’t be able to stay awake to eat it, but I will have to smell it cooking while trying to fall asleep.

And she will be insulted if I don’t try a slice while it is still hot from the oven.

It’s a rough life.

Pity me?
