Does the alarm even go off that early?

So, PPT is on Student Council at school. It's new for him, since 5th grade is the first year you can be on it, and he got stuck in some "Safety and Grounds" position, which didn't really mean anything to me until tonight.

M: How was your Student Council meeting at lunch today?

PPT: Good.

M: What did you find out?

PPT: Not much. We have to put up the flag and be the greeters at the drive-through...oh, and I have to be at school at 7:30 every morning.

M: WHAT?!?!?! (Smoke & flames shooting out of ears)

Now, let me back up. 5th-8th graders start school earlier than K-4th does...they have to be in their seats in class by 8:00, and the lower grades start at 8:15. So I've already had to adjust my alarm once this year...and those of you who know me know that I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON. I hate mornings. I hate getting out of bed. I hate the alarm. I hate the dogs, who hear me peeing and run to the bathroom to snort at me under the door until I let them out. I hate it all.

So what does 7:30 arrival mean for me? It means I have to set my alarm for 5:00, hoping to be up by 6:00, so I can leave by 7:15 at the latest and drop off PPT. It means an uber-grumpy Dictator, who like his mother, is NOT a morning person.

And it means none of this matters, because my beloved PPT actually wants to be involved with school and if I have to have his little ass there at 5:00 in the morning, I will. Because I'm so very proud of him.

Now someone explain that to The Dictator.
