This very definately made me smile - there are mornings I wish my alarm clock would give me just 10 more minutes... very nicely told. God bless.
I liked your example of what a farmer does to his alarm clock...made me chuckle..nice job.

Cute story--the barbecued chicken had me laughing out loud!

Great stuff! Kind of "A Tell-Tale Heart" if Poe had one shred of a humor gene in him. Interested to see who wrote the piece so I can read more of their work...

This is a great example of a piece written with an authentic voice. So witty and readable! Yours was truly a unique "take" on escape, too. Well done!
Cute. Some punctuation problems but nothing that can't be fixed. A fun read.

My brothers and I had just such an alarm clock. After many years of beatings we gave it to a church bazzar. Then it looked so lonely sitting there that we used our "candy money" to buy it back.

Great story and wonderful moral.
