Hey – in other news my stupid life alarm went off three times today before I left the house.
The first was the middle of the night. It was on my shoulder and I rolled onto my side. It fell about 2 inches. I lay there thinking, “If I move it now it won’t go off. I should do that. Nah, it fell 2 inches. I need do nothing.” Thinking when barely conscious isn’t my forte – if it is my forte at any other time – not sure there.
The second and third times were as I sat down during my various morning absolution. By the third time it called up I was both annoyed and feeling guilty. Annoyed that it hardly seemed I could move without alerting someone to my movements. Guilty that I was causing false alarms. “I’m not doing this on purpose!” I told the responder when it went off the 3rd time.
Tomorrow we are going to go with zero alarms.
