I set my clock alarm as well as my phone alarm this morning, because my phone alarm messed up recently and I didn’t want to take any chances. I haven’t heard/used my clock alarm in a really long time. So long, in fact, that I’m referring to it as a “clock alarm” when shouldn’t it be “alarm clock”? What is this?
Anyway, so my clock alarm went off with a very loud, disorienting BEEP BEEP BEEP! I fell out of bed, confused and desperate to turn it off. I flipped the switch and the radio came on, playing some really bad song. And, because I was still half-asleep, I was like, “WHAT IS THAT? WHERE IS THAT MUSIC? HOW STOP?” Flailing and trying to find some button to turn off the radio alarm thing.
Finally I found it, then sat on my floor laughing for three minutes.
