i wake abruptly to loud music and a slap round the head. The loud music is the bedside clock radio alarm, apparently set to go off at midnight; the slap round the head (accompanied by a small yell) is Mary’s apparent reaction to any disturbance. Takes me a minute to figure out how to turn off the alarm, then silence.
But I’m awake now. The alarm doesn’t go off at 1am, nor does it go off at 2am. Fortunately I go off before 3am.
