death of my alarm clock

yesterday, my alarm clock died. i killed it. it wasn’t on purpose. i didn’t mean to hurt it.

i like sleep…love it actually. i’m a huge fan of naps. and i’m typically a deep sleeper. i tend to run at full speed then drop and sleep..kinda like puppies do. i keep my alarm clock on a shelf in the hallway outside my bedroom door. having to get up to walk over to the alarm to turn it off helps me to wake up. when i kept alarm clocks next to my bed, i had murdered them before…just smacking that snooze button way too hard. so i moved the clocks away from the nightstand and put them in places that required me to walk over to them. i hadn’t killed any since i made that move.

but yesterday the alarm went off early in the morning on a day with weather perfect for sleeping…gray, overcast, cool…ideal for snoozing a little longer under the covers. i don’t remember the alarm going off. i woke up thinking i really need something to drink…as i walked out my bedroom door, i started realizing it was kinda bright out. and then i looked at the clock…there it sat, still in its place on the shelf, the snooze button sunken in and no longer pressable, making this really low meeeeeeppppppppp, meeeeeeeeppppppppppp, sound.

today, i’m going to target for a new one. i wonder if they make an industrial, indestructible one…
