Waking Up On the Wrong Side

09 Mar

My husband’s recently married friend made an observation I couldn’t resist sharing.

When he was a bachur and he got up early/on time for shachris he’d look around his dorm room at other guys still sleeping and feel good about himself. He had resolve, strengnth, he could beat his yetzer hara; it was good for his self-esteem and self perception.

Now when he wakes up early he looks around and see his wife, still sleeping, and is jealous.

    Better this way than the other way around….if she wakes up and he’s still sleeping.

    I thought it would be that he wakes up and she’s up already. He’s no longer first.

    MM and PL: it happens both ways, but either way he ends up losing mentally. 🙂
