I think it’s almost time to say goodbye to a dear friend; my alarm clock. I know, I know – not a big deal, right? But we have history! My trusty alarm clock is 20+ years old and clearly showing its age; it used to be white and grey, but is now a sickly yellow. I inherited it from R when I was a preteen and it has followed me ever since. I took it to the dorms at uni and back home again, and now it’s with me on the other side of the country. But… it’s dying a slow death, losing time, falling behind about 5 minutes a day. I don’t want to let it go – newer alarms definitely don’t last as long!
I think I’m going to hold onto it until it craps out completely – I really have no desire to hunt for another one. Apparently this particular clock has a bit of a following – there’s a group for it on Facebook!
