Technology - Ain't It Amazing?
Not that that would ever happen or anything...
Anyway, we had this agreement. I was up and out of bed on Sunday and the clock read 6:30 AM. Meaning, it was really 5:30, new time. Awesome! Boy, going to sleep early on Saturday evening sure paid off - here I had all these extra hours before the kids even stirred.
"I didn't touch it!" he insisted.
"You had to! Look at the sun!"
Larry glanced at his watch. "You're right - it's 7:30. Or should be 7:30."
We stared at our alarm clock radio like startled savages. Who did it? When? And then we realized - I had bought it for Larry on Father's Day, unaware of its special powers until now. It changed itself.
Shades of HAL 9000, if you ask me...
