First Things
Morning Person: Leaps out of bed singing with the birds.
Early Riser: Up early, yes. It’s still dark, yes. There. Is. No. Song.

Morning Person: Doesn’t really need the coffee.
Early Riser: Coffee. Is. Not. Optional.

Attitude Toward Life
Morning Person: Happy, cheerful, alert.
Early Riser: Why are you asking about attitude anyway?

Morning Person: Thank you, God, for this beautiful day!
Early Riser: Thank you, God, that no one else is up!

Morning Person: How could I stay asleep when there’s a day to be lived?
Early Riser: If I get up before them, then I’ll be awake when they leap out of bed. And I can’t sleep anyway (just who is in charge of my circadian rhythm anyway?).
