The peace of Gerald's sleep was shattered like a
polycrystalline structure under a large tensile force. The
beeping of the alarm clock could not be ignored, and he
rolled over ungracefully and switched it off. "Just a few
more minutes," he thought to himself. "Then I'll ge-"
Again! That incessant
beeping! "Fine!" - Gerald, once more,
rolled over and unplugged the alarm clock...
...Which set off the smoke detectors. A chorus of beeping
penetrated the house as Gerald stumbled around his
bedroom, frantically trying to pull his pyjama pants on over
his head. Ensconced in sheets and pants (almost), he
stumbled into the bathroom, where the Stage Two
button awaited him, gleaming smugly underneath the taps
in the shower.
Five minutes later the hot water cut out and the alarms
again cut in, and Gerald remembered, with somewhat
uncharitable thoughts, the Stage Three button waiting for
him next to the toaster.
