Is it twelve o clock yet!??

It was birthday of a person very dear to me.
As usual, by the time the clock struck ten, my eyelids were carrying the weight of 10 sand bags. I managed to not look at the watch for an hour.
I just had to do it. Wish at SHARP twelve.
Saw a little bit of TV. All talk show hosts started to hypnotize. Every direction seemed to lead to the bed. I gave in. Set the alarm on my phone for fifteen minutes to twelve. I can almost swear that I was snoring before I touched the pillow.
Trust me, every blood cell of mine blessed me and got lost into deep slumber. I slept like a baby cuddling up with a doll. Just that my phone played the doll.
But, no. If only things could be that simple.
My subconscious brain was screaming its recital..Is it twelve O clock YET? Is it twelve O clock YET??

Alarm rang. Snoozed it.
Alarm rang again. Snoozed it again.

Brain: Wake up.
Me: I'm trying to force open one eyelid..wait..

Brain: WAKE UP.
Me: OMG! I have Ten Whole Minutes to go!

Brain: WAKE up!
Me: I think just five minutes would have past..

Brain: WAKE UP!!!!!
Me:I.. I... I....

I accepted my defeat to this conspiracy of the Brain and the Alarm. Gave a call. Guess what! I was the first one to wish. I was so glad I made it that we started off with a little chat about what's next, what plans for birthday and before I knew it was twelve!! *<:D
Spoke for around ten minutes.
And yeah, by the time I hung up...FINALLY, I wasn't sleepy anymore.

LOL.
Trust me Meera, on my last birthday, my best friend called me up at SHARP TWELVE. And in my dizzy state I thought its the alarm ringing and I shut it off and went back to sleep.
Next day I had much more to face than just birthday bumps. ;)
