Portent past

It's good that I set two alarms to get up this morning, because I must have turned one of them off when I was awakened in the middle of the night by my smoke alarm low-battery warning, just like I cynically said would happen. I had the battery, and I was going to change it this very weekend... just not in the middle of the night. I stumbled around, and with a burst of I-really-wanna-get-back-to-sleep adrenaline, picked up my minifridge from my storage room, took it to my bedroom, climbed on top, got on my tippy-toes, and changed the battery in my alarm. For those who are wondering, it is difficult to get back to sleep after you just picked up and then climbed on top of a minifridge. Luckily, I was very tired, and tired won out.
