Confessions of a Fauf

Preview of Coming Attractions

It's approaching that time of year when the Fauf becomes another person. Many of you may not know this about the Fauf if you have not lived in close vicinity with her. But she has a duo-personality. There are two characters she can be. There is the care-free, stay up late and sleep in, make no permanent plans, live life to its fullest Fauf. This Fauf emerges from her sleep in mid-June and prepares for hybernation mid-August. This is the Fauf that has recently moved to Santa Maria. Then there is the disciplined, go to bed early and wake up even earlier, follow a schedule, living for a higher purpose Fauf. This Fauf awakens at the end of August and thrives till early June, taking weeks of hybernation every few months during holidays. This is the Fauf that is beginning to awake even now.

For those of you who have not yet met this new Fauf that will soon come to life, here are some sneak peeks at who she is to better prepare you.

1. She requires a good 8 hours of sleep every night except for weekends.
2. She runs her day by a strict watch of the clock.
3. She dresses in more professional garb.
4. Most of her conversation centers around children and their strange behaviors.
5. She consumes larger amounts of caffein.

If you are afraid that the new Fauf about to emerge will be sinfully boring and highly annoying, do not fear. This new Fauf is much more creative, much more keen, and can have much more fun because it comes in concentrated doses. So rather than shy away from the new Fauf, embrace her and all her new idiosyncracies!

Wow, I can't wait to meet this character and have her envy me while I lay in bed as she leaves in the mornings. Muahahaha.

Question: If one encounters this "Fauf" in a state of, oh lets say vexation, how exactly should one react? Is this "Fauf" a fast moving creature? Should we attempt to run, or would the strategies employed with grizzly bears (curl into ball) be a better option? Does this "Fauf" have any natural predators, besides only getting 7 hours of sleep of course.

Yes. This Fauf is the Fauf I have known. She is the Fauf who I was first introduced to. I understand both Faufs, I envy one, and I will hold to both Faufs. Woe is to me, the man who must endure the wrath of two Faufs.
