The Alarm Clock from Hell

Ok, so here is the deal. I am not a morning person. The thought of getting up when it is still dark outside, is repulsive and just wrong. I would rather stay burrowed in my covers til mid afternoon if that was possible. So you can imagine how unforgiving I can be when the alarm clock goes off. NOT A PRETTY PICTURE! Now, the hubby can get up just fine, however he will hit the snooze button so many times that I will basically want to kill him. I don’t know what I have against the snooze button, but all I can say is that I am irrational in the morning, so there is no point in trying to understand it.

Lately, it is not the snooze button that is making me crazy, but our demon possessed cat, Americus. I believe she thinks she is THE NEWEST ALARM CLOCK on the market. She will begin her meowing, and I don’t mean meowing, I mean MEOWING at about 15 minutes before the alarm even makes a peep and will not stop until one of us gets out of bed to feed the demon. I don’t know what her deal is, is she meticulously trying to kill me in a slow, painful death? Or is this just her revenge because I like to squeeze her like Elmira from Tiny Toons? I really can’t help it, and I always thought she liked it….but they always say revenge comes in the simplest forms and if this is her revenge, then it is ON, baby!
