An OLD Clock Radio
The first thing I do when I wake up is roll over to my right and turn on NPR. I'm a fan of morning edition and weekend edition. But if it's the puzzle master Will Shortz I turn it off for a few minutes, and then turn it back on. I don't care for Will Shortz, mostly because his guest callers are ignorant and the silence after questions is so damn painful. But this morning the trusted clock radio wasn't working well. I told this to my wife Therese and she said "Well, the radio was a wedding gift." This apparently means that electronics are not expected to last as long as my marriage, which took place in 1991 for those still counting.
