About a month ago, the radio in my alarm clock got tuned off of any particular station, and I've been waking up to static. So far so good; it does wake me up. The last couple of nights, though, I've discovered the peril of this situation. We set up the humidifier in the bedroom, and it makes a hissing noise not entirely unlike radio static.... and several times each night, I wake up thinking that it's my alarm.
To top things off, when I picked up my glasses this morning, one of the temples fell right off at the hinge. Untill I find that tube of superglue, my vision is slightly cockeyed. It's probably time for another prescription and a new pair of frames anyway.
