Unexpectedly Intriguing!
19 August 2022

Did you wake up on the right side of the bed this morning?

By that, we're really asking whether you got up early enough after having enough sleep before you go off to accomplish all the stuff you intend to today. Getting up on the "right side" of the bed means you did, while getting up on the "wrong side" of the bed means you did not.

We're asking that question today because British mathematician Dr. Anne-Marie Imafidon has constructed a mathematical relationship to determine which of those sides of the bed you woke up on. You can imagine our palpable excitement when we discovered the following video in which she discusses her formula:

After watching the video to decipher her math, we have to agree with Ralphie from Christmas Story:

And yet, we wondered if she might be onto something. So we built a tool to do her math. If you're accessing this article on a site that republishes our RSS news feed, please click through to our site to access a working version of the tool.

Factors Affecting Whether You Wake Up on the Right Side of the Bed or Not
Input Data Values
Minutes Spent Eating Breakfast
Minutes Spent Exercising
Minutes Spent Showering
Minutes Spent on Other "Getting Ready" Activities
Hours Spent Sleeping
Hours Your Wake-Up Time Was Away from 7:12 AM

Did You Wake Up on the Right or Wrong Side of the Bed?
Calculated Results Values
Which side of the bed did you wake up on?

The default data in the tool was provided by WFXB's Carolina AM's Greg and Audra, where the tool's results differs from Audra's because she went off into the weeds in doing her calculations.

Then again, that might be expected for someone who woke up on the wrong side of the bed! (For the record, we find she woke up on the right side!) Regardless, change the values as you need to represent your own personal scenario, and the tool will determine which side of the bed you got up on!
