From Rockybado 4: Running Up a Hill
It was 7:45 in the morning, and David and Brody Ingram had to be at their jobs at nine o’clock this morning. David struggled to get out of bed. However, with fifteen minutes of that kind of struggling, he was able to get himself out of bed and ready for the day. Brody, as always, was an exception. He managed to sleep through his alarm, even though he had three or four different alarms going off at the same time. He was sleeping on his stomach, with his head underneath his pillow, and his comforter pushed off to the side. For another fifteen minutes or so, Brody’s alarms continued to go off. Annoyed by this, David turned off all of his little brother’s alarms and shook him as hard as he possibly could. Brody stirred, but he was not quite awake yet. David was going to make sure that would no longer be the case.
“Wake up, B-Rodes,” David said.
“No,” Brody replied.
“It’s eight o’clock, man.”
“You have your internship at nine o’clock,” David remarked.
“I usually wake up in fifteen minutes,” Brody answered, muffled because his face was buried in his pillow.
“Okay then. You want fifteen more minutes?”
“Okay. I’ll give you fifteen more minutes.”
