I am almost always awake long before The Mrs, and usually before the sunrises. Sometimes, The Mrs leaves me notes on the kitchen counter by the coffee pot because in my early morning routine I feed cats and make coffee right off. The notes could be information about something that occurred after I went to bed the night before, or a reminder about something important about to happen in the new day, or maybe a task or favor she would like for me to accomplish. So this morning there were 2 notes waiting for me.

This first was an informational note about someone who stayed up much later than she wanted to last night…

But the second was a stickie note next to her tea infuser with the command, “WATCH!!”. I watched that tea infuser for what must have been 20 minutes, but it did nothing… NOTHING AT ALL! So I am not sure what I was watching, but obviously I have already failed the day.
