Wake-up Calls

What is the first thing you hear in the morning: Alarm? Radio? Kids? Dog? How do you respond? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1019).

I arise to the chirp of birds every morning.  Loud, insistent, chirps.  I arise, that is, to the sound of digital bird chirps blaring from my alarm clock.  It’s always set at 7 am.  It’s intent is only incidentally to awaken me. (The truth be told, I often get up before it goes off.)  The main purpose is to remind me to push a button on the wall in my bedroom.  If I don’t push that button, the nurse will be at my door early afternoon to see that I’m all right.  It’s comforting, I suppose in a way, to know that if I should pass away overnight, the world will be notified other than odoriferously.
