Its early in the morning, say 6:00 AM. The alarm clock next to your bed is set to ring at 6:45 PM. You are fast asleep having beautiful dreams or nightmares depending on the dreams you normally have. In this case it is always a good dream.
For some strange reason, you wake up at 6:00 AM. You may have slept late or early, it does not matter but you get up at 6:00 AM, with absolutely no reason at all. You glance at the clock and check the time. You still have some time before you actually get up. You feel blessed, you feel happy and you feel relieved to find out that you still have time to get back to your beauty sleep. But then you feel the need to go to the toilet. Its not that its going to be an emergency but still the sensation is there, the need to clear the gall bladder, the need to get it over with. The toilet is just feet away but removing the sheets, getting out of bed, walking to the toilet, putting on the lights and getting it over with looks like a difficult task.
“Its just few minutes before you actually get up”, you think. A few minutes means that much needed sleep. You close your eyes to continue with the dream just like a paused movie on the DVD player. You tend to ignore the gall bladder for now. But the nagging feeling of the need to go still remains. You cannot concentrate on the sleep anymore.
Even Hamlet had an easier problem than the one you have now, “To go or not to go”. You look at the clock again. You already have spent 10-15 minutes deciding to go or not to go. The need to go is much stronger. The sleep and the dream will not come now unless you finish the task.
You get up with much efforts, walk to the toilet and finish off. You still have 15-20 minutes before the alarm rings. It’s a race against time. You lay on the bed and try to sleep. It will be sometime before you actually sleep and start dreaming again and then the alarm rings.
You just hate that!
Moral of the story, When you got to go……..GO.
