Timmy’s Nipple is No More

5 Jul

Now before you get concerned for Timmy and his “missing nipple”, or think this post is going 50 Shades of twisted, let me clarify.

Over a year ago, my husband, Tim (Timmy), had a job that required him to get up at the butt crack of dawn…5:20 am.  In true codependant fashion, he wanted me to set my alarm in addition to him setting his to “help” him get up on time each morning.

This annoyed me to no end.    I manage to get myself up everyday without him setting an alarm and urging me to get out of bed, so why am I am being asked to do this!

Because he would not let up about me helping him out, I petulantly set the alarm on my phone for 5:20 am.  In a moment of “ha ha ha I will show you!”, I appropriately named the alarm “Timmy’s Nipple.”

I thought this title appropriately summed up this situation as I felt like I was pacifying…babysitting…etc.

Even though I have not used “Timmy’s Nipple” in some time, it remained on my phone, and I enjoyed a chuckle at my wicked self from time to time over it.  I have started trying to get up early to go walk/jog/drag myself around the neighborhood, and wouldn’t you know 5:20 am, is the perfect time for me to start working up the gumption to get up.

So as of today, Timmy’s Nipple is no more!  It is now and hopefully forever known as GET UP AND MOVE!!!!!

    You’re brave. Being an evening person, I’d rather work out late at night that try and get up at the crack of dawn. The alarm goes off at 6.00AM every day and I already need half an hour to get myself into a vertical position. Well done, and more importantly, keep on the good work !

      Thanks Ingrid! I prefer night workouts too, but it has been so hot here lately that it is get up early or stroke out trying to work out at night!
