Two Legs Bad, No Legs Worse...

This morning I awoke at about 3. There was a beep beep beep somewhere in the house. An alarm. It wasn't my watch, or the clock on the bedside cabinet. What the hell was it? I went from room to room looking for this mysterious sound. Just when I decided that it was in my head and not in the real world, I went to the toilet...

...and there was the culprit.

It was a goddamn mirror! Yeah, that's right. What the hell? Staring at my reflection I even managed to catch how daft I thought that was.

I was given a fog free shaving mirror for Christmas. Great and long overdue. But, question: why in the name of all that is sensible do I need an alarm on my bloody bathroom mirror? That is where guys shave these days, isn't it? Am I shaving too long? Is it in case I forget to get out of the shower when I'm done? Am I falling asleep on the pot without my knowledge? If I am then yeah, maybe I do want an alarm next to the loo roll, but otherwise, no. Let me shave in peace, please.

Tee hee - whoever makes the mirrors has a warped sense of humour and sets them all at strange times.

Hey, have you ever gone through the alarm clock section at (insert department store name here) and set all the alarms one minute apart?

Now you can go to the cosmetics section (or wherever shaving mirrors can be found) and do the same thing!

I know. Juvenile, but fun.

Haha! How silly. And irritating! I would have thought I was going mad.

I just can't understand what the logic is behind the alarm? I must be out of the loop there.

Evidently it is so you don't be late. It's for those people who like to take their time shaving. You know. Chatting with friends, singing, making faces. Time flies by. Alarm goes off. Oops! I better get to work! *hacks and chops at face in a hurry to finish up*

What will they think of next?

Since my last visit, I was inspired to dabble in some fiction again. I just concluded a seven-parter which began on 1/7/07 and concluded on Sunday, 1/14.

It is titled "Perchance To Dream."

Thanks for the kick in the butt that got me motivated to write it.
