The Bright Lights

For quite a while, we have been depending on a bedside clock that occasionally has gone berserk during the night and displayed only bouncing 12:00 numbers. A couple of days ago, I awoke during the night, reached to turn the clock toward me so that I could read the time and, when I touched it, the clock slid off the ledge and fell to the floor where it cracked open. So ended the fading life of our ancient chronometer purchased from Radio Shack years ago. It was time for a new one. That same afternoon, we drove to Wal-Mart in search of a new bedside clock. We had no trouble finding what we were looking for–a clock with extra-large numerals, almost bright enough to light up the room. Not only is our new clock dependable, but it also has made our sleep less restless, knowing that we can count on the correct time to be there when we need it with no need to put on glasses during the night in order to read the numerals.
