Has anyone else ever had one of those dreams where you wake up to the sound of your alarm clock, but when you go to hit the snooze bar, it doesn’t stop going off. So, you physically turn it off, but it is still going off. You unplug your alarm clock, but that doesn’t help. You start getting frustrated because no matter what you do, the alarm won’t stop. Worse yet, you are disturbing other people with the sound of your alarm clock.
It is usually at this point I wake up to the sound of my alarm clock, the sound of which I have somehow worked into whatever dream I was having when it went off.
