False alarm

Several things race through your mind when you see the clock and think you have overslept.

Did I not set the alarm last night? Did it simply not work? Did we have a power outtage? Is the radio station that's supposed to come on off the air for some reason? Is that really the time?

Then comes the checklist. You know, a quick rundown of what you have to accomplish at work today.

This is bad. I needed to get a good start.

But maybe if I zoom through my getting-ready routines I can catch up. And perhaps the extra sleep will bolster me today.

Still, I'm late. Really late.

Wait. I don't understand. Didn't I finish that one thing at work yesterday?

Then it hits you.

It's Saturday.

Never mind.

Let heaven and nature sing.
