Demons possessed my alarm clock this morning.
It's usually a "beep beep (pause) beep beep (pause) beep beep" and it started out just fine, but after I hit the snooze button a couple times it did this: "beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ..."
I fell out of bed trying to unplug it.
I finally got it unplugged from where I landed on the floor. But guess what? It also has a battery backup.
So I fumbled, in the dark, to get the damn battery compartment open and get the batteries out.
The beeping stopped and the face of the clock went dark.
A full 10 seconds later, the digital face of the clock flashed on again. Ten seconds later, again.
I'm wondering if I should smash it with a hammer before I throw it away. Perhaps send it off with a couple cloves of garlic?
