Wake up Call


The other morning around 4:30AM Scott’s alarm clock went off. Loudly. Beeping. He does get up early, but not that early and not usually with such volume. He rolled over and shut it off, whispering that he hadn’t even set it. (Having three dogs and three kids sometimes makes the need for a morning wake-up call redundant.) About 10 minutes later – same thing. This time he gets out of bed, figuring he might as well get up and get to work early. He goes to shower while Maggie crawls in the bed beside me snuggling and we are just nodding off again when … BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP. Are you kidding me? I jump up, run to his side of the bed, can’t figure out how to shut it off, so I rip the plug out of the wall and crawl back into bed. And it goes off AGAIN. Scott comes running from the bathroom in a towel only to find it beeping AND unplugged. Huh? I won’t repeat what he said. Maggie might, and probably in front of my mother-in-law, but that will be another story.
So, yes, we threw the clock away. And that night Scott got out the iPod to use as an alarm clock. He had a little trouble setting the alarm, though. The iPod thought it was February 26, 1967!!!
