Alarm Clock: Mine Enemy

I hate mornings. Really hate them. Ever since I was a child, I'd rather fall asleep to the sunrise than wake up to it. Even now, on weekends if there is nothing that has to be done, I could easily sleep until noon.

I'm also a bit of an ass in the morning. I'll admit to that. It's not intentional, I promise you. It just takes me a good long time to fully wake. I don't usually converse until I've been at work for at least an hour. Fortunately, my job allows for this.

My morning ritual includes the smacking of the snooze button 2-3 times. I keep the alarm clock just out of my reach to make certain that I move when it buzzes. Of course, I cheat, and keep a wooden rod nearby that is just long enough to reach the magical 9-more-minutes button.

This morning, when I hit the snooze, the digital readout turned from 7am to noon. I was angered, offended, furious. I needed my extra time! No damn alarm was going to deprive me of that. So, very rationally and controlled, I re-set the clock to the proper time, and the alarm for 7:10. But, when I turned the alarm back to "on," the 12:00 reading flashed again.

I was foiled. And what's worse, I began to realize the folly of my actions. I had used enough energy fooling with that damn clock that I could have easily arisen and started my day. Earlier than usual. Early enough to enjoy a longer, hot shower. A tastier breakfast not rushed through. A chance to catch the forecast on The Weather Channel.

The clock won. I surrendered and rose to face the day.

But, like I said, I'm a bit of an ass in the morning. The clock may have won the battle, but it was going to lose the war. I laughed as I spiked my now defective clock to the floor like a Heisman Trophy winning running back. I basked in my victory as I watched the small pieces of plastic and electronics shower to the floor. Revenge was mine.

Of course, my extra time that morning was spent in the store spending $20 on a new alarm clock.

Remind me again who won?

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

Do you remember the beginning of your message to me the other day where you said, "You're f&(*king with me or you'll think I'm f*((&king with you?" Ok, I paraphrased but you know exactly what I'm referring to!!!!

I, too, hate the mornings.
I, too, snooze 2 or 3 times.
I, too, can sleep until noon.
I, too, am a grumpy-butt in the mornings.
I, too, will forego showers and breakfast so that I can sleep that extra 18 or 27 minutes.

I swear to God, you're my Man-Twin.

You and I sound exactly alike. Unlike my former Marine Corps husband who makes me sick as he can be fully awake no later than
6 am and get this....whistles and sings! Asshole. Many times have I hurled a high heel at his head as he heads to the bathroom. You have the right idea not spending a whole lot on an alarm clock. I go through them at the same rate you do. I have brought many a clock to an early death!

I knew I'd be in great company!

SRB - Seriously, stop it. Am I going to have to line my house with tin foil to stop the brain-scan? LOL

Candy - yeah, staying up late in blog town can have horrible results!

Kiera - Only thing worse than being up early is having to endure a "morning person" in action. I believe that is how most serial killers get thier start!

mzhunyhole - Thanks for stopping by! Plowboy is da man!

I love mornings, and I am usually happy when I wake up. I just don't get to bed in time, so I love the "extra 9 minutes" button as well.

If you were woke up as I described in my blog, The Gift, would mornings be better for you? *grin*
