Waking Up A Teenager

is impossible!

It would probably be easier to raise someone from the dead than to wake up Marshall.

Last time I was here and was given the responsibility of waking him up he reassured me that it's not that difficult and that he'll get up at the set time. Yeah, that totes didn't happen!

I gave it another go this Sunday so we could go to church.

I tried the usual, shaking him, talking non stop, shoving his body into the bed so it kinda bounced him. I even ran and jumped on the side of the bed because Marsh moved closer to the wall because he thought I couldn't reach him then???

I then asked him if he wanted me to put ice on him. He wasn't too keen on that idea. What? I was just trying to be nice in case he liked that.

My final attempt was to plug in my ipod and sing to him until Earthquake came on. At that point I decided to have a 1 person flash mob. Wait, that's not really a flash mom due to the lack of mob right? But it was kinda flash since it wasn't planned and I dispersed when it was over.

Anyway, I was dancing in his room for a good 2min before he rolled over and looked at me like I was crazy. My response? "What, I'm just flash mobbing."

That did the trick. He ended up taking over the ipod and showed me which song he uses to wake up.

And with that, I cracked the code and will hopefully be more successful next time.
