It’s funny how I have such a strong connection for something that I’ve had for around 12 or 13 years. After weeks of being on a sort of hiatus, I came across a very somewhat funny comment, because I had no idea how this one thing could have such an impact on people. My little rooster alarm (with the guitar) has been my savior for being on time to so many places- school, work, church, etc. It allows me to go to sleep at like 3 in the morning and wake up at 5 or 6. Just with the sound, “Wow…Hey….Hey baby wake up and come and dance with me.” It continues until you push down on the red top. The comment that I got today was based on this rooster and if I was selling it. I can not part with this rooster because I have accumulated a lot of wonderful memories surrounding it. Some of these moments would be all the way from when my mother gave it to me when I was 6 or 7 until now where my nephews have gained a personal liking to it. Even for the amount I could sell it, (ebay sells it for $152 with 40 days until the bid is over) I know that I would be incomplete and I know that there is no other alarm clock like it. The funny thing is that my mom got it from Dillards, Montgomery Ward, or Burdines (now Macy’s) for like $6 cause their was a wrong price listed. I never really thought that I had something passed on or rare until now because I never really gave it any thought, but I do appreciate it and even keep it on its own little pedestal.
