Okay, regard me as boring, but I like my 8 hours of good night’s sleep. It makes me fresh and I feel healthy, energetic and ready to combat the big bad world that awaits me everyday. If it is not too much for you to digest, I love waking up early, especially at 6 AM in the morning, feel the morning freshness, the warmth, the pure sunshine which falls for the first time on the window.
Okay, enough of the Wordsworth. The basic idea that I want to explain is that I like my sleep. And I like getting up early, which is a result of a very good night’s sleep. Yesterday night was no different. Yesterday was a fun day. We went out for a nice brunch, roaming in and around the city, just having a good time until we were so tired that our legs couldn’t keep up. Then after such an exciting day, I went to bed and fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. Perfect Ending? Well not quite.
The phone rang in the middle of the night.
Now to think of it, I don’t even remember of having picked up the phone. And I don’t remember the first part of the conversation. On the line was a friend, asking something about an interview she would be having some day and wanted to talk about it.
Heres a snippet of that conversation. The first few exchanges have been drafted because I simply don’t remember what I told her.
Friend: Hey, hello
Friend: Were you sleeping?
Me: No no. I wasn’t. I was doing some financial modelling on the weekdays.
Me: You remember? What we used to do before? Like on the basis of Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays? With every day we kind of did an analysis in the paper Financial Statement Analysis?
Friend: What? Okay this is not making any sense.
Me: Well you know the Mondays and Wednesdays. We used to do that. I was doing that. We took the mondays and the wednesdays and assigned a ratio and stuff.
Friend: Were you doing something like…monday’s child full of grace etc?
Me: Ah yes. yes. Right.
Friend: But how does that relate to Financial Statement Analysis?
Me: (fully conscious now) Never mind. I shall explain it to you later. Did you have something to talk about?
After quite a few assurances that I was doing something related to Financial Statement Analysis and would definitely explain the content later, I steered the conversation about the interview and we talked about an hour. At the end none of us had the remembrance of the first part of our conversation and everything ended happily ever after.
Or so I hope.
