Ditzy Chronicles Part 2: The Alarm Clock June 25, 2008

Posted by bookbutterfly in Ditzy Chronicles, music.

It’s 2:30 at night. I’ve been trying to fall asleep for over half an hour, now. Suddenly, I think I hear something. Something like…drums. Beating. Very LOUD. I ran through what this was all about. Either: (1) some wacko decided to play his drums really loud or (2) there are robbers outside our house with the punk rock radio station turned up all the way that I can hear it from my room. I guess that number one may not be it, but number two is probable. So here I am, laying in bed, freaking out that there are robbers outside our house (yes, punk-rock-listening robbers). I cup my ear, afraid, but I listen. And listen. And listen. And before I know it, I recognize a song. It wasn’t a punk rock song. It was a country song. Not just ANY song. A Rascal Flatts song. Great. I recognized it b/c I’ve heard it so much on the radio in the car. I listen closely. The song ends. Now I think either one of two things is possible: (1) the robbers like country music or (2) I’m delusional. Soon, I hear another song, one that was the Blake Shelton version of “Home”.* WAIT A SECOND!! First off, I’m not delusional, since I hadn’t yet heard his version of it, and secondly…it was my alarm clock radio. Great.

The ditzy part? I don’t know how to use my alarm clock. Sad, yes. My alarm clock is pretty old, and I still don’t know how to work it out. Finally, I figured it out, so after I got out of the shower a few minutes ago…well, I turned on the radio and listened to some country. Yep! And, yes, I was able to successfully turn it off.

*I knew this b/c (1) my mom owns the original “Home” by Michael Buble on her iPod (she wanted me to buy the song for her for Christmas a couple yrs ago) and (2) I subscribe to Country Weekly. YES, it is a country music magazine. *sigh* What can I say? Give me books, the Internet, and country music and I’m set to go!

“or (2) there are robbers outside our house with the punk rock radio station turned up all the way that I can hear it from my room.”Well, I’ve heard that punk rock is very popular among robbers, so that seems like a logical conclusion to me. πŸ˜‰

HA! So I am NOT the only person who can’t set an alarm clock!

spider: That’s true. πŸ˜€ Though it’s less probable that they’d turn it up before trying to “secretly” break in to a house, you know what I mean?TRG: Yay for people who can’t use alarm clocks! πŸ˜› πŸ˜‰
