The original Ira saying

Well, it might not be the original but I’m very fond of it and use it often, so here goes:

There used to be 3 things that got me out of bed before dawn:  Skiing, golf and sex. Now there’s only golf.

Pretty much the truth. Let me say right here and right now that I have never been a morning person or at least not for a number or years. My “commute” to work is about 7 minutes and I routinely crawl out of bed at an hour when many of my clients and friends are at work (except for Dave who is worse than I am and Dave will know which Dave I mean).

To prove my point, in the course of the next week or so, I have at least 4 days when I will be up and on the road way to early.  3 of those are golf days so I’m not really complaining but for each of those I will be out of bed by 6 AM. Just writing it down makes me sleepy. Wednesday is not a golf day but one of the many trips we take to SU during the year. Out of the house by 7, up to SU, pack up the car, drive home.  Lunch at the Varsity or Cosmos for good measure.

I can’t tell why or when this whole “not a morning person” thing happened, it just did. Can’t tell you when I came up with the whole “there’s only golf” thing, it just did.  And I can’t tell you why I get out of bed for golf, I just do but if I keep playing the way I am, I may have to come up with a new favorite saying.


About IraSez

I am the owner of Monarch Communications, a graphic design/advertising/website design firm in Millburn, NJ. You can take a look at some of our work at I started IraSez at the urging of my wife, a couple of friends and several facebook friends who actually encouraged me to write a book. They think I'm funny but some of my latest blogs have covered some rather somber topics. In my spare time, I run the local SU alumni club. I'm in the 9th year of a 3 year term or as us SU grads called "fuzzy math." I'm SU '82, wife is SU '83, daughter is SU '11, son is SU '14, even my nephew goes to SU. So yes, we bleed Orange. I like to play golf, watch the same movies over and over, and take long walks with my dog on the trails in South Mountain Reservation behind Old Short Hills. If you see a guy wearing something with an SU logo chasing after a dog named Cosmo, that's me!

  1. Well we’ve all know that I’m the polar opposite of both of you guys. I roll over at 4:11AM (way too early…btw wrong use of “to” Ira) with the usual morning situation, thinking about sex, golf, work at the same time. That’s an ADD brain for you. It’s way too early for the first two, so what’s a guy to do. You guessed it. Take my usual morning commute of 38 seconds…go downstairs and start working. Btw, the heat still runs here Ira, so don’t feel bad, it’s 26 degrees outside.

    I’m smiling though because 40 or so solar panels are now installed at the house and ready to go on line. Soon I’ll be producing electricity up at the site for Holy Cross Energy and spinning the meter backwards….ahhhh life’s simple pleasures.

    Btw, your bedroom is coming along nicely!

    Well sex should count anymore since you technically shouldn’t have to get out of bed to get it.

  3. I can’t tell why or when this whole “not a morning person” thing happened

    I think, for me at least, it happened sometime around the time I turned 8.
