i’m not so strong with alarm clocks

today got off to a bad start: last night, andrea asked if i could give her a ride to work because she hurt her ankle. no problem, of course. so i set my alarm before bed so i’d wake up a few minutes earlier so as not to be late. except that what i had really done was completely reset my alarm unintentionally so it never went off. fantastic. i woke up at 8:10 (i was supposed to pick her up at 8) and then called her immediately to apologize profusely. i don’t even remember the last time i didn’t wake up on time…i’m usually super anal about checking and double checking it before going to bed. i guess i was less so last night, for some reason. and interestingly: the only reason i woke up was because, in my unconscious state, i thought to myself: “wow, you sure have gotten a lot of sleep…if you were to open your eyes now you wouldn’t even feel tired! wait a minute…aren’t you supposed to be doing something this morning?” at which point i opened my eyes and leapt to my feet. fantastic.
