It seldom happens this way

At six this morning the most awful clangor. In time I recognized my other alarm, the one with the extraordinary noise that will get through to me at the wrong time. Six a.m. is the wrong time.

I am off with Linda to buy rug stuff. We’re leaving at seven. Her ETD’s frequently are imaginary, so I called her at seven, and left a message.

She called back at 7:10 to announce, to her great joy, she really had a phone in the bottom of the twenty pound weight she calls a purse. 

To my great joy, she’s just coming through the toll booth.

It will be a good day.

    I haven't heard an alarm clock since I was a small child, when Dad would set the clock as he left for work, to be sure I'd get up and go to school. Only in the winter.

  16. I haven't used my alarm clock in years. In other words, no noise at an ungodly hour.
