Ever since Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs hit movie screens in 1937, we've learned to sing merrily as we go to work, and to be kind to wandering women who need to stay with us (since they might be princesses, or simply just very good roommates). We also learned to love seven very welcoming and hardworking men of diminutive stature.
The Seven Dwarfs were not always known by their Disney names, but that's how they became famous. Each one has a distinct characteristic - and all of those are pretty recognizable to most of us. We've all been sleepy, grumpy, or sneezy at times (though to be fair, not all of us have experience being "doc"). Still, how we are early in the morning when our blood sugar is low, our to-do list is long, and our commute looms over us - that's a time when most behave in a way that could be much like one of Seven Dwarfs.
Some of us spring from our beds delighted to greet the world, while others schlep miserably from bed to shower to car or subway. Tell us about your mornings, and we'll figure out who your dwarf role model truly is!
