When my anxieties conspire against me.

I did not want to get up this morning. Twice my alarm rang, and twice I turned it off and went back to sleep. After the second time, I dreamed that I went to the bank to withdraw thirty dollars, and was told that my account balance was only twenty-five dollars. “How could that be?” I was horrified. “I had a hundred dollars in there yesterday!”

The teller turned the screen so that I could see recent transactions on my account. There were three debits of twenty-five dollars each, all from early that morning. Then I realized that every time I hit snooze on my alarm, it cost me twenty-five dollars.

I woke up.

    That made me laugh–I used to have dreams like that all the time before I stopped using an alarm clock. I’m so sorry you’re so stressed, and I will be sending you extra love and good vibes.

    Come over. We stocked the bar. Sam snuggles make anxieties go kablooie.

    That is funny as heck. Sure beats my dream of the wee monkey being an animagus – changing into a killer whale.

    The holly daze will soon be over and we can get back to our normal non-neurotic selves.

    Could you imagine if that were true? I wouldn’t be able to afford to snooze.

    I know, I know…
    Some days it just doesn’t pay to get out of bed.

    My mama said there would be days like this,
    When everything I aim for I just miss,
    Oh I think I’m gonna stay right here in bed,
    That’s exactly what my sweet mama said.

    It would’ve been much cheaper to just turn off your alarm & go back to sleep!

    Nuh-uh. Every time you hit the snooze alarm an angel gets its wings (c.f. Frank Napra’s It’s a Slumberful Life.)

    Sounds like a crossed story from Benjamin Franklin & Augustin Burroughs
