10 More Minutes of Sleep

Every weekday, I take a Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) bus to work. Since I’m not a morning person, I find myself getting up between 6:45am and 7:15am. This sometimes proves problematic since I have to be at work for 8am. Most mornings, I manage to get there on time by taking the express bus. But this usually means standing up which makes it difficult to read. I could take a local bus which would guarantee a seat but that means I would have to get up at least 10minutes earlier. For now, I prefer to sleep. It’s simply too cold and dark most winter mornings. But it would be nice to use the time to read more. I have started and finished many a book riding the CTA.
