And the early worm inevitably gets eaten by some overeager bird.

Early to bed and early to rise often indicates unskilled worker.

Or someone with no social life to speak of.

Well the early to bed part might indicate a certain social life — but that only results in early to rise if you’re the one who has to get up and go home

I’m guessing it probably indicates a lack of anything better to do with one’s evening.

Or excellent choice of companion? It’s the morning part I don’t get.

Maybe the spouse works night shifts, so it’s critical to be gone before they return?

OK… NOW we are into the WISE words of wisdom! Early to bed indeed! Our society is so morning-centric!
