Don't you dare wake up!

Haven't written a funny memory in a while, and that's just not like me. So here's a story :)

In my single days, I had a strange "relationship" with my alarm clock. I am an insomniac since...oh, I don't remember when...so I would fall asleep some time close to early morning. And would have to go to work by 9, so every morning would be a fight with the alarm clock. It would ring for at least an HOUR before I would actually stop hitting the snooze button and get my body out of bed (the soul would still be there for some more time ;-)

Every morning, my brain would conjure up some weird dream close to wake up time...some how related to the clock, and why bad things would happen if I woke up. It would usually be something related to the hottest news in the world or whatever had been discussed heavily the day before.

During the 9/11 days...when Osama was the biggest news here in the US, I had this dream about him, right around the time my alarm was supposed to go off. I don't remember the details of what happened in the dream before the alarm went off. But when it did go off...I sort of saw Osama sitting on my clock, saying, "Don't you dare wake up, or I'll bomb you!"

It was very believable too! I snoozed a few times before my brain finally woke up and registered what was going on :)

I had quite a few funny dreams. Some thing new every day, that I don't remember anymore. I guess this one just takes the cake. No more dreaming anymore though. I am quite awake at least 10 minutes before Kishore Kumar starts to sing "Aa chal ke tujhe...main leke chaloo, ek aise gagan ke tale..." on my alarm.

Holla.. Laden on ur clock.. wow.. use pakad lena tha.. Bush wud have given u a zillion dollars :))


When I was in school, I used to have a Fabre-leuba alarm clock kept right beside me. Its sound could be heard half a kilometer away. Even then, my Mom would have to come and shut the noise and wake me up!

When in college, I used to get up precisely a minute before the alarm went off.. my biological clock was right in sync wid the alarm one.

Hi masi ji
ur pic iz really kool:)

Let's call the Freudians to tell us what it means.

aneri_masi said...

@vrij, now thats a zillion dollar suggestion!

My husband still has his old Favre-Leuba. He refuses to part with it, although we don't use it anymore (chaabhi aun wind karega, isko leke arguments hoti thi!) Usmein snooze button nahi hota na, wahi pe maar kha jaata hai woh!

@abhishek, same here. Ek kaam kar, get married (if you aren't already) to someone who won't wake up unless you hand her some tea! That's what wakes me up, chaai banana hota hai, no choice :(

@ella, :)

@preeti, my dad too! Itna ki shuru shuru mein he would call from india! And yep, gotta have a BIG reason for being late to work na ;)

aneri_masi said...

@nirmal, kya karte the hands ke saath??

@anjuli, if that was the case, then we would want it the other way round!

@sol, einh, don't need Freud for this. It simply means, I don't wanna get up :)

@pri, yeah, he was squatting on top of the clock! And its a surprise I still like that song, considering what it does to me every morning ;)

@sahefa, thanks sweetie!

ceedy said...

Cool...I wake up and look at the alarm clock to ring....

OSama....hehe...biju koi malyu nahi sawarna yaad karva :P

check out dreamers dictionary (google) if you want to do TP to interpret what you see in your dreams...
