Life's Little Mysteries #3

Why, at 5am in the morning, do I insist on ignoring the pleading of my bladder, believing instead that it will be possible to enjoy a few more hours' sleep without necessitating a short trip to the bathroom?

The last 100 times I have been faced with this decision I have opted to stay within the warm confines of the duvet - and each time, with the benefit of hindsight, have reached the conclusion that I chose badly. "Next time I'll just go to the bathroom" I tell myself - but the next time I re-evaluate the situation and decide that my resolution was made hastily and without a proper understanding of the circumstances (mainly the fact that its cold outside the duvet).

What makes me think that things will be any different this time?

Its a bollix of a decision, but the reward of getting back into a warm comfy bed is almost worth it. Almost.

Careful, BA. I just read an article recently about exploding bladders. Get up and pee no matter what.
