false start saturday

I woke up this morning and groggily reached out for the clock, wondering how much time I had before I had to get ready for class. “8:52″ the clock said. I was hit with a sudden panic. “I’m so late!” I thought. In a rush of adrenaline I nearly leapt out of bed.

Then slowly, laboriously, the rest of my brain caught up with myself. “Calm down!” my brain said. “Today is Saturday.”

Still feeling mildly confused, but beginning to accept the fact that the weekend had arrived, relief slowly filled me. I rolled over and went back to sleep.

Such a strange way to start the day. But thank goodness for Saturdays.

    Reminds me of a morning when I woke up at and took a shower to get ready for school. When I got out of the shower my dad was knocking on the door wondering why I was getting ready at two in the morning. Somehow I read my alarm clock wrong.

    When I was a kid I once started getting changed for school while I was still asleep. My parents found me sleep-walking naked in the hallway.

    Not quite the same thing. I couldn’t blame that on the clock.
