180px-Windup_alarm_clockI seem to have a pattern.  The alarm clock goes off at 6:10am.  I hit the snooze button, which strangely has a NINE minute duration (couldn’t it have been ten?).  I get up at 6:18am, even though I technically have another minute to spare because by bladder is about to burst.  I’m  out of the house by 7:10am (I’m trying to trim that down, but I need to shave, shower, get dressed, and eat).  My walk to the bus stop takes five minutes, but 4 minutes into it, I see that my bus has arrived.  I start running to catch the bus, while carefully cross the street.  I barely make it, but luckily the bus driver has two seconds of patience.  It’s always the same bus driver each day because the timing is like clockwork…
