I don't use an alarm clock. I prefer my children to do that job. But, my husband uses one. So, I in a sense, do use one. This morning, it went off at 5:45 am. "Good Morning" from the Deliberate Kids album started playing. Which means, I basically laid there for the next 45 minutes while he walked "quietly" in and out of the room, turning on the closet light retrieving clothes.
And it got me thinking about my hatred for alarm clocks. I know that playing music is supposedly a better way to start my day than "BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP" but I don't really enjoy starting my day. So, either of those options are bad in my opinion.
Someone, somewhere needs to invent an alarm clock that can wake one sleeping person in a bed without waking the other. I think maybe something that attached to your arm or leg and vibrated or sent an electric shock. Or maybe it would vibrate to begin with and then if it didn't sense you getting out of bed, it shocks you. Not like a Tazer, just a little jolt to make you jump.
It might work better than coffee!
