Her Mom Couldn't Wake Her Up So She Called In A Brass Band
Aug 16, 2015
10-year-old Sophie has clearly been enjoying those lazy summer mornings, to the point her mom simply couldn't wake her up at a reasonable hour. With school coming up, mom was getting desperate. She tried coaxing their boisterous dogs into the bed, tried baking fresh cinnamon rolls, nothing was working. But her local morning radio show, "The Bert Show," had an idea. They brought in ragtime revivalist Blair Crimmins and the rest of his band, who crowded into Sophie's bedroom and launched into an energetic medley that woke up Sophie, and probably all of her neighbors, too. Sophie's reaction is priceless, but she certainly is awake.
While we at Wimp love to see the sunrise (that's our story and we're sticking to it), many people struggle to wake up in the morning, hitting the snooze button, pulling the sheets over their heads and doing everything they can to get just one more minute in that comfy bed. Kids are no exception to this and while that's fine in the summertime, when school starts it's a different story. Many children need to be at school quite early, or have to wake up in time for the bus.
