Waking up the hard way
The last dial at the back of my alarm clock went missing after countless falls to the floor. I lost it at the worst possible moment: when the alarm was set at 6:30.
With no way to adjust the time or the alarm, I have been forced to wake up by torture the last few days: the clock rings, I hit snooze, it rings again, I hit snooze again and so on. I repeat until I get fed up or for half an hour whatever happens first.
