New & Used

The unwelcome jolt of my old morning alarm: beeeeep beeeeeep beeeeeep.
How quickly my arm swung around to silence it.
The inventor of the snooze button was a genius.
Seven more minutes…like a handful of chocolate without the calories.

The welcome sound of my new alarm: cooing, raspberry blowing, laughter.
This morning I let my alarm go off for twenty minutes.
It was the sweetest sound. I didn’t mind it going off early at 5:30am.
The inventor of the baby monitor was a genius.
It’s better than chocolate. Even at 5:30am.
