Oops. When I used an alarm clock as an example of a type of gadget referred to as an alarm I didn’t notice that alarm clock had its own entry in the dictionary. Now, what’s left to say about alarm clock? Not much.
One personal note: I usually naturally wake up reasonably, but not absurdly early. Of course, that’s a subjective measure. You might think my waking time falls outside of the reasonably to not absurdly early boundaries. But that’s neither here nor there.
The point is, I don’t move quickly in the morning. Well, that’s not the point I made in describing my waking time. But it is the relevant point for this personal note.
If I have a morning appointment, I need to set my alarm at least an hour, and, to be on the safe side, more, ahead of when I’ve got to get moving if I want to have any chance of making my appointment.
Fortunately, I’m self-employed and I have considerable control over when I set appointments. I try to avoid scheduling anything before 10:00 a.m. at the earliest. Thus, I rarely need to use my alarm clock.
I’m guessing that none of the above interests you in the least. I stated it only because I thought the entry on alarm clock deserved at least a few paragraphs, but I had nothing else to say. Mission accomplished. You can now go about your business of trying to find another way to waste your time.
