…in case you were wondering.


“The Alarm Clock”

Filed under: Uncategorized

His powers are minimal. Really just the one.

He can wake up without an alarm clock. He simply tells his mind that he must be up and moments before the alarm sounds, his groggy eyes open.

As most superheros, The Alarm Clock, emerged from tragedy. The inner struggle for years of being forced to wake up to a loud beeping sound, this brave hero adapted a keen sense of alertness, even in sleep. It doesn’t matter what time this hero goes to bed, or needs to be awake in the morning, which allows him to sleep in if his mind allows. Other days something triggers in his mind and wakes him regardless of fatigue.

Other superheros mock this great hero. Discrediting his important powers. Telling each other there is no value in simply being able to wake up on time. No justice league has ever invited The Alarm Clock on important missions, and he frequently eats breakfast alone.

There is really no way to fight crime or save lives with this special power. No worlds to save, no great symbol in the sky. However, more recently he has started being asked to wake people up in the mornings at specific times.

This is the life of The Alarm Clock. I wish I wasn’t him.

I’m not sure why I am on a superhero kick lately, but make your own here.

Wow sounds like what I do every, single, morning. The only downside to becoming ajusted to an alarm clock and waking up at a specific time each morning is that mornings like this beautiful Saturday, no alarm clock means nothing, might as well have set it. Growing up sucks huh?

…Oh and as to why you might be on a “superhero” kick, I think it has something to do with guys in tights.

Comment by Shawn Bashor

Ya, I hate to say that mine seems to skip out on Saturdays … some superhero.

Comment by Alymc

ummm…I’m a little concerned myself by the guy in tights…how do you type a “shiver down the spine”?

Comment by Michael

Wowzers Michael,
had you not said anything I would have never thought “the guy in tights” looks like you…well the face does anyway.

Comment by Shawn Bashor

oops … it didnt work .. what did i do wrong?
hmm … im gonna try to figure it out.

Comment by Alymc

Michael,
While it is obvious why would should not attempt the “tight thing,” I whole heartedly reserve the right as a fat guy to wear a speedo.

Comment by Shawn Bashor

we* not would, it’s late and I was at a rodeo all night in Miami…I know, I know, a rodeo is exactly what everyone associates Miami with.

Comment by Shawn Bashor

Definitely. I’m constantly at rodeos.
Every single night.

Comment by Raquel TWG

why is there a big star on your crotch and why is my dog, Scooter, on your leg?

Comment by nancy

oh my gosh….the funny thing is…..this is a real thing !!! uhh…not the super hero himself…..but, it is a fact that we are created with the ability to wake up at a predetermined time…it takes practice because we live in a world now that is dependant on mechanics….but, I learned about it while doing a homeschooling lesson with my kids !!! My son proved it works…he looked at the clock the nights before….said I will wake up at 10 am….did that for several nights…..and he actually would wake up within 10 minutes of that time. the weird part is….he could never wake up without an alarm before that !!!!!! lol…crazy !!!!
