Groggy and barely half awake, I hear the faint chimes of my alarm clock ringing in the background of my dream. I scramble to find my phone and successfully slide my finger across the screen over the unlock button.
I hit the “x” and the noise stops. I do this for the next hour in random intervals: 7:03 a.m., 7:08 a.m., 7:19 a.m., 7:29 a.m., 7:36 a.m.
At 7:44 a.m., I hear the other alarm clock strategically placed on the counter in the kitchen. Limp legs sluggishly drag myself out of bed toward the noise as a tingly hand slaps the snooze.
