WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER12TH., 2016
I have been assigned to a new chore.
Each evening, as I head towards the comfort
of my bed, my wife asks that I return to the
kitchen and set the timer on our stove to
one hour and fifty nine minutes.
Since I generally retire around Midnight
you might well ask what's cooking that's
expected to be ready around 2am?
Truth be told there's nothing cooking!
The timing device on our stove is
suppose to emit a beeping sound when
the timer goes off. On our stove, however,
the beeping sounds constantly. At least
that's what I'm told. You see......I can't
My years as a DJ prior to turning
to news have left me with a slight
hearing loss. Apparently the frequency
of the stove alarm is one that doesn't
show up in my ears.
The only time the beeping can't
be heard by the rest of you is when
it's in the countdown mode. But the
alarm can only be set to one hour and
fifty nine minutes! When that runs out
the beeping begins!
Hence my new bedtime assignment!
Hope I don't get the 2 and 4 am shifts
and that all your NEWS is good!
