It happens to the best of us. Oversleeping isn’t the plan. Being up early, or at least on time is a daily goal. The odd thing is that it is actually easier the older I get. Now, understand, I go to bed earlier than I used to. Still, this morning, I awoke at five, just like the character mentioned here, but I didn’t get right up. Instead, I let sleep return and woke for good at 6:45.
See, I don’t force my example sentences to be entirely accurate!
