I head into the kitchen--wait-people drink coffee at this hour, don't they?
I head to the shower--wait-I took a shower not that long ago, when I was on the back end of a night shift.
I go to get dressed--wait-am I dressing for daytime heat or overnight lack of sleep cold?
I pack a lunch--wait-does lunch look the same as stay awake snacks?
I head to my lobby--yes, Mr. Doorman, I am as confused as you are to see me leaving at this hour.
I walk to the bus stop--wait-I am with a crowd, not alone, and there are many buses coming, not just one or two.
I arrive at work--wait-relieving the overnighters, rather than the other way around.
I take my meal break--wait-I can actually go out, as it is not the dead of night!
My day is done--wait-what? Done? In the middle of the afternoon? Now what do I do?
It is truly amazing how our systems adapt so quickly to our current reality that what was once normal can feel so abnormal. It has been a lovely few hours on the dayside. But it's not so terrible that I'm a little confused. I'll be back at night before it will even matter.
