COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO, oh no not again. COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO, I squeeze my eyes shut tighter. COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO, I open my eyes in small slithers, peering angrily at the ceiling. COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO, I rummage under the sheets and pillows for my cell phone. COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO. The crowing of my novelty rooster alarm intensifies, I can’t handle it. I can’t go on... it’s too much. Pillows and duvets fly everywhere as I franticly look for the source of the rooster din. My hand touches something cool, AH HA! My phone, I whip it out from under the pillow. It’s not my phone; it’s a fork from last night’s midnight snack. Tossing it aside I look for the source of the irritating alarm. CLUNK, I hear my phone side off the mattress onto the floor.

I sigh heavily and side out of bed onto the floor. “SHIT!” I look down to see that I have stood on the fork. Grumbling I scoop up the fork and head to the kitchen. Happy morning sunlight shines through the blinds, making zebra shadows on the floor and bench, I glare at it angrily. I fill up the jug and flick the switch up for it to boil. I walk over to the cupboard for a cup and the coffee, MEEOW! I’ve stood on the cat’s foot, the Fat ball of fur screeches and bolts out the cat door. We should’ve gotten a dog. While the jug boils I wander down the hall to the bathroom. “GODDAMN IT” I’ve walked into the electric heater that hangs off the wall. Who would even put a...
