Contrary to popular belief, the phrase "rise and shine" was coined by neurologist Amy Earlybird-Smith back in 1813. She liked to round on her patients first thing in the morning, leaving the rest of the day to do her notes by ink and quill pen. Because every patient she visited was fast asleep, Earlybird-Smith would say, "Rise and shine!" and shine a bright light into their pupils. Patients hated it; she loved it. So whenever you use this phrase, say thank you to Dr. Earlybird-Smith for pioneering the idea of poor sleeping habits.
