The Wake Up Call

I did not run yesterday morning. The alarm was set and went off on
schedule. I had heard during the night while turning in my sleep that it
was raining outside. When the alarm rang, I tried to listen if it was
still raining and ended up drifting off. I rolled over to look at the
clock and found I still had some time to go. But drifted off again. Only
to wake with a start when I realized that my wife's alarm was not going
off this morning as she had no school. (She teaches kindergarten in the
local school system.) Fortunately, I was on time for the normal
non-running day schedule to dress, eat, read the morning paper, and
catch the train. But I missed my run.

Do you hit the snooze button? Or do you jump out of bed to do whatever
it is you do?
