Description

For 40 years, Carlos Galvez woke up every morning at 6:50 to go to work half asleep.  For 40 years, he hated waking up early in the morning. The first Monday of his retirement, the alarm rang as usual.  His wife woke up with a jolt. “But Carlos, did you forget that you are retired?” “Not at all dear, I just wanted to know what it feels like to continue sleeping at 7:00 in the morning” He shut his eyes, thought about his golf game that was waiting for him that afternoon, his fishing trip planned for the day after, playing poker with his friends, and his old workmates who, at that same moment, were rushing to work. With a smile of satisfaction, he went peacefully back to sleep.
