and time makes lovers feel, like they’ve got something real, but you and me we know we’ve got nothin’ but time…oh, sorry, having a Boy George 80’s moment. I still love that song.
Anyway, here’s the deal – I want my cube clock back.
Seriously, I’m pretty good with new technology. I switched from a PC to a Mac without much issue, I’ve installed software and moved from a Blackberry to a PalmPre with few difficulties. I can work a remote, set my DVR.
I haven’t been able to work an alarm clock since my Sony cube. I’ve had that cube since before college. Which, was a while ago. Quite a while ago, and I can’t believe it’s still working.
See, it was on my side of the bed until Zoo and I had to switch sides for the kid. And then since I was staying home and he was the only one going out to work, the clock stayed on his side. And then I bought a new clock. A big, shiny new clock that I didn’t know how to set.
Zoo set it for me and it took me the better part of six months to realize he’d set it to a Spanish radio station. I couldn’t understand any of the songs when I woke up but I’m not a morning person and just assumed that I was really tired.
I have four new clocks – four perfectly good clocks and I can’t work any of them. So, last week, I bought a new Sony cube. I figured – it’s the cube! Probably as easy as my old cube…a perfect solution.
I still can’t work it.
I know you’re saying to yourself, why doesn’t she just give him the new clock and take back the old clock? And I have no answer for you. It’s not like the clock is being held hostage or anything.
As long as I’m confessing, I might as well admit that most of the time I end up watching the commercials on the shows I’ve DVR’d because I forget they’re recorded shows. Just me? Yes?
