You hear that dreadful noise coming through your dream. That constant and annoying sound that just keeps going on and on. You struggle to make sense of the repetition and slowly your mind sharpens to the point that you can make out that the irritation is your alarm clock going off. You reach an arm out from under your warm cocoon and are startled by the frigid air. Fumbling around, you finally locate the snooze button and quickly draw your hand back under the protection of the warm covers. You snuggle back down into your comfortably warm cloud and float back into the world of tranquility. You are just getting back to your pleasant dream when the peace is broken by that blaring noise again. You repeat this process for the next thirty minutes in nine minute intervals before you finally yield to the electronic pest.
