I don’t need ’em, but I have ’em.

I have two alarm clocks — one digital, one analog.  The digital clock is set to NPR, and it goes off at 6 a.m. every morning, 365 days a year.  The analog clock doesn’t actually have a working alarm, but at 5:52 a.m., it makes this clicking sound, and that tells me I have eight minutes until my actual alarm goes off, and I have to get up.  The reason I say I don’t actually need them is my body will naturally wake me up around 5:30, and I’ll just lay there for half an hour lightly dozing; I don’t actually fall back to sleep.  I was that lucky (or sad, depends on your perspective) person in college that didn’t mind taking early classes because I didn’t have trouble getting up of a morning.  Of course, I much preferred taking later ones so I could sleep in, but sometimes I had no choice.  I also don’t need caffeine in the morning to get me awake, either.  I don’t drink caffeine, and I haven’t in a long, long time.  My sister is the exact opposite of me — she needs three cups of coffee just to function. I laugh at her sometimes for that, but she’ll just flip me off and stick out her tongue, telling me to shut it.

    The clock never stops. It never waits. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. We, on the other hand have our breaking points. I guess, you will need them one day.
