I didn’t touch the clock. It sat there and did what it was supposed to, telling the time in big, green glowing numbers. That was my mistake. Somebody had set the clock alarm to ring them awake to a smart selection of music in the middle of the night. Half asleep, in the dark, I explored the seamless clock looking for the on/off switch to no avail. In desperation, I finally sought and found the low tech solution to the problem - pull the electric cord and watch it die.
