Grand Junction Colorado Does This The Minute They Get Up

Before we get into this, let's extinguish two things right away:

  • This is not a riddle. Some responded with the obvious answer, "The first thing I do each morning when I wake up is open my eyes." True, but that's not where we're going.
  • The obvious answer of "Take a winkie" is just that - obvious.

I sincerely want to know what people do first thing in the morning.

Something To Consider

Years ago I had a chance to attend a week-long music course with bassist-extraordinaire Victor Wooten. In addition to intense music education, Victor likes to share his philosophies. As a student of Victor Wooten's, you are required to do two things every morning, the instant you wake up:

  • Make your bed
  • Ask yourself, "What am I not seeing?"

Why "make your bed"? Well, according to Victor, if you do that, you'll accomplish at least one thing for the day. When it comes to asking yourself "What am I not seeing?" Well, that's open to interpretation.

I think you'll be surprised by the diverse reactions people had to the question. In case you ever wondered, this is what Grand Junctionites do the first thing in the morning.
