"The Rooster Crowed At Midnight"
This was the title of an old episode of MASH back in the day, but it is also the title of this post. I have a talking watch. I only use the talking feature if my eyes are really driving me nuts. It also has an alarm mode which I rarely use. Several months ago, I had new batteries installed and I then reset the visual and audio times.
I went to bed at 10:15 Thursday night and fell asleep fairly quickly. At 12:00, I was awakened by "It's 12:00AM Cock-a-doodle-do Cock-a-doodle-do..." It would have stopped in a minute but I got up, went to the living room table and turned it off because the crowing was driving me nuts. I'd forgotten how damned annoying that rooster could be! I must have accidentally activated the alarm function while I was out running errands in my multi-layered -45 Windchill attire on Thursday morning. Oh well these things happen right? So I crawled back into bed and ... yup... stared at the ceiling 'cause I'm WIDE awake! So what do you do when you can't get back to sleep - I got up and turned on the computer and started writing this post.
Normally the rooster crowing is somewhat amusing. It's a tinny sounding "Cock-a-doodle-do" but in my head I hear Foghorn Leghorn saying "I say, I say now, It's time to get up now ya'hear, ya' hear me now?" Okay okay I know I'm nuts but this is news - how??
As many of you know, I am one of those people who NEEDS sleep - at least 8 hours - preferably 9 and I don't function too well on 1 1/2 hours unless it is an afternoon nap! So let's just say that I'm REALLY glad for spell check! Now if I can only figure out how to use this toolbar... then I have to roast a rooster!
