Time Piece


  • Anthea Garman Rhodes University




I’ve never believed in setting the alarm clock early and then snoozing it, and snoozing it, and snoozing it. I calculate to the minute the time I need to get ready at full speed and then set the alarm to the very last second before. I like to be surrounded by time: a clock in every room and one for each veranda. I like to forget time: don’t wear a watch on the weekends, put the cell phone aside. I need the calendar alerts to tell me what to do next. I hate the calendar alerts telling me what to do. I set them faithfully; I grumble at them when they buzz.
