My alarm clock

I just unearthed the alarm clock from my college days.It had been lying in a pile of forgotten belongings for these past five years, until I decided to rescue it. A battery change later, it's ticking off cheerily and has even assured me with its shrill electronic dual tone alarm.

Hmmm ... wonder why I feel so rejuvenated, so young because of a ticking clock. Isn't it supposed to work the other way? The clock running our youth down, grimly indicating to us the fleeting nature of time.

I guess it reminds me of my college days, when it would sit pretty on top my study table and when my life used to be regulated by its two unequal whiskers. All these years, I have been free of it, waking and sleeping and slouching as I please but today I have found that determined friend who will goad me to a schedule.

Its good to have friends.


  1. you cannot touch the same water twice (in a river)... but i hope you do manage to stick to your schedules!

  2. @Kermit: liked the way you covered your a** with (in a river) clarification ;) ... but yeah, I'm in the linear-time universe too ... heheheh

  3. Ah, The studious type, who needs an alarm clock to wake up. :P

  4. @Bubbu: never the studious type, trying to change a few things ;)

  5. Schedules suck... 'coz at some point in life, they become so darned unavoidable...
