We were trying to figure out what time the boy needed to wake up to get to the PSAT test on time. The test is at 9 a.m., check-in starts at 8:40, it takes 10 minutes or so to drive to the school, and 30 minutes for him to get out of bed, have some breakfast and get ready to go, so I was thinking he’d need to get up at 8 a.m.
“WHAT?!” he shouted. “That’s too early! I’ll be the first person there!”
“OK,” I said, “what time do you think would be good?”
“8:05,” he said.
