Sarah and I were sitting at the kitchen table this morning when we heard the familiar buzz of a cell phone on "vibrate." At first I thought someone was calling me but it turned out to be Sarah's phone, the alarm set to 8:20.

A few minutes later the buzzing started again and Sarah said, "It must be 8:22."

I laughed. "You have your alarm set to 8:20 and 8:22?"

"Yeah," she said.

I couldn't think of why on earth she would have the alarms set to such seemingly random times.

"What happens at 8:20?" I asked.

Without hesitating she answered, "The first alarm goes off."
