Just When You Thought it was Safe to Sleep Through the Night
Poor Angel. He had to help me through a difficult time about 4:00 to 5:00 a.m. But he got me situated and more importantly, MEDICATED, and he even got the phone working as an alarm clock again--the second time I needed it next.
At 8:00 a.m., he was my alarm clock. He poked me on the shoulder and beeped at me while saying, "Time to take your pill." Of course, I, in my sleep-induced fog, thought he said, "Look, I can propel," and expected him to fly away, so I lay there motionless, waiting to see him fly. Then I realized that I was awake and he was still poking and beeping at me. To my disappointment, he did not fly.
So I took another pill. I also ordered another battery for my son's phone. And I won't be missing anymore doses anytime soon. At all.
