Backup Alarm

So I was lying half awake in bed this morning when I felt Diego-san get up from lying to the right of my head and move to the leftside. He proceeded to take his big right paw and whap me in the mouth. I think this was mostly inadvertent on his part- usually what he does is whap his paw against the top of my covers and this indicates he wants me to lift the covers so he can crawl underneath.

I scolded him and tried to go back to bed. That's when it dawned on me that it was lighter than it should have been. I bolted up and looked at my alarm clock. Sure enough, it was an hour past the time I have to get up to get to work. Having Monday off as a holiday, I had forgot to set my alarm clock.

Obviously Diego-san assessed this situation and did what he had to do to get me up and out of bed. (And to feed him his overdue breakfast.)
