Winter gave me a magical moment today, as itís prone to do at least a few times per year. While driving I was held up by an Amtrak train. It blew the snow on the tracks into such an incredible cloud that the train disappeared as soon as it crossed my path. The flurry continued with the train and I was never able to see it again.
Iíve been using the same alarm clock for months now, but only today discovered a hidden feature of it. Iím the sort of person who hits snooze a lot before waking up. Actually, I pick up the alarm clock after the first buzzer and bring it back to bed with me. Then with each round of snoozing itís already in my hand for easy access.
Iíve been annoyed for a while that the button seems incredibly hard to push. I have to press it hard or hit it multiple times to get the alarm to stop. This morning was I cognizant enough to realize that the amount of times it has to be pressed is increased by one every time you hit snooze. So on the fourth round; you have to press it four times to silence it.
I hope that this is true, and not just some sort of sleepy-time hallucination.
Apparently this was something I made up in my dreamy state. It’s Meredith’s alarm clock and she said it definitely doesn’t do what I’ve described. Rather than being so awake that I was able to discover this, I was really so sleepy that I made it up.
