The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Where the sun shines brighter

"The other man's grass," observed Petula Clark, "is always greener," and one verse of that song has been haunting me of late:

Many times, it seems to me
There's someone else I'd rather be
Living in a world of make-believe
To stay in bed 'til nearly three
With nothing there to worry me
Would seem to be the life I might achieve

I don't see myself achieving this, exactly — for one, rather a lot of the accessible worlds of make-believe have been consolidated as the "reality-based community" — but as an experiment, I did try staying in bed 'til nearly three.

As you can see from the time-stamp, it didn't work.
