Introduction I'm a Dixie Yid living in the Five Towns. I'm interested in thinking about what makes me and others tick, in learning Chassidus, hearing a good ma'aseh, and being with my wife and children. I'm a full-time husband and father, a full-time learner, and a full time bankruptcy/creditors' rights/corporate restructuring associate. Crazy, I know. Denomination: Underconstructionist

When you hesitate before hitting snooze on your alarm clock, are you being lazy?

It depends. I happen to have a moat between my bed and the alarm clock. In order to hit snooze, I must get in the boat, untie it, row across, hit the snooze, row back, tie up the boat and get back in to bed. So for me no. What about you?
