I have a stop watch. This stop watch has an alarm. It is set to go off at 5:00 am. I have no idea how it got set. I have no idea how to change the setting or turn it off. For several years, this stop watch has been stored in a cabinet in the laundry room.
A couple of weeks ago, this stop watch made its way out of the cabinet. I'm not sure how it happened, but it did.
It is now in our bedroom. Somewhere in our bedroom. I have no idea where. I have looked under, over, and through everything.
Every morning, the silly thing goes off at 5:00 am. I wake up and try to find it. However, it only goes off for one minute. So, I have one minute to wake up, remind myself I've got to get up and find it, and quickly (ha!) follow the sound. No luck so far. All I've succeeded in doing is stumbling out of bed in a daze and kind of staring around the room. I have managed to open a few dresser drawers to see if the sound gets louder, but that's it.
The whole thing is pretty comical and we have been able to laugh about it, but I really do need to find it.
I think I'm going to have to set my alarm clock earlier than the stop watch alarm so I can be completely awake when the thing goes off.
