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.


  1. I had a clock radio I got for my High School graduation. It came for J C Penney's and lasted about 40 years. When last seen it still worked, we just lost it somewhere.

    I've been married about twice as long as you have.

  2. Twice as long Mominem? Congrats on that and your radio.

  3. Will Shortz is from Indiana, give him another chance, because every day is simply another day for someone from Indiana to be less annoying.

    He cannot possibly be worse then James Arey.

    Therese is a saint and not the football kind...
