Thunder can, you can't

I never really understood that thing, "you can wake me in the middle of the night for..". Or i understood, but i thought the answer would be nothing. Some people say a certain food, but imagine waking up and being all drowsy and having that sleep taste in your mouth; the reality of being woken up for anything in the middle of the night is just nasty. Waking up in the morning is hard enough.

But then this night, as i was sleeping under my steeply slanted roof with a window open, a huge thunderstrorm woke me to a room full of flashing lights, sounds big enough to reverberate in my chest, and that smell, that ozony rainy air that seems a bit thicker than normal air. I loved it. I might not fully wake up today, but it was worth it.
