Yes. Now that you barged
in my room uninvited
making as much noise
as humanly possible.

No. I just answered
your phone call
and said hello
all as I was sleeping.

Yes. But don’t worry
I wasn’t trying
to get some sleep or anything…
feel free to come
and wake me up
whenever you would like.

No. It’s 3 o’clock am…
Most people are asleep at this time of the night…

Yes. And I can thank you for waking me up

No. Did you need something?
is there something I could help you with?
do you need a ride somewhere?
do you need money?
did you want to go workout?
whatever it is…
just let me know and I am your guy.

Use common sense…
if a person appears to be asleep
don’t ask them if they’re awake.
and remember if somebody answers their phone
