NPO after midnight or you'll turn into a gremlin!

I'm so not a morning person, however, I've gotten use to waking up super early (4ish, which is ungodly early for me). I've gotten use to having to answer questions for attendings at 6 a.m. Going to bed at 9 p.m. is fine now. But I still feel bad every time I walk into a hospital room at 5 a.m. and wake somebody up to ask them questions like "have you passed gas yet?" Maybe it will encourage people to get well quicker so they don't have to deal with med students asking questions about their bodily functions the minute they're jolted into reality.
