No snoozing

Somewhere in my bedroom…

…in a buried box…

…taped shut…

…is my alarm clock.

This alarm clock has a feature that you can turn it “off” for the day, but it will still be set for the next day. It apparently also has another handy feature that the backup battery will power the alarm even in a power failure, or, in my case, even if unplugged and packed in a taped box buried somewhere in your bedroom.

I don’t mind getting up this early. I usually get up after one snooze cycle anyway. But what is truly amusing: not only did I have to nudge my husband and wake him to advise him that the annoying sound he was hearing was not going to stop any time soon, but his response was to mutter something about hoping it didn’t keep on for too long as he snuggled deeper into his pillow and successfully managed to ignore the noise.

And he’s still there, sleeping away. And the alarm has an Energizer battery, I’m sure of it.

  1. OOOPS! That is too funny!Better make sure you have a new 9V battery for that thing for when you get where you’re going. It’ll probably ring all the way to Kansas.

  2. Hey, I recently added a news widget from < HREF="http://www.widgetmate.com/" REL="nofollow">http://www.widgetmate.com<> to my blog. It shows the latest news, and just took a copy and paste to implement. Might interest you too.

  3. Why don’t those batteries work like that in your child’s favorite toy??
