I was dreaming this morning that Clinton and I were on some beach somewhere doing some sort of detective work. There were a lot of caves and bridges and we were on or in one of them, I don't remember for sure, when all of a sudden, in the distance, there was a phone ringing. It kept ringing and wouldn't stop. I turned around and around trying to find the phone that was somehow ringing louder and louder. It was really disturbing my ability to detect whatever it was I was detecting.
I woke up to Clinton's alarm (2nd time this week) and realized I only had 45 minutes left till I had to get up (sigh). I tried to go back to sleep, but I had to go to the bathroom, so I grumpily got up, went into the bathroom where Clinton was brushing his teeth, turned off the light, said "your alarm woke me up", and went back to bed. Clinton came in a few minutes later for prayer. Just as I was falling asleep, I heard a scratching at my door and had to let Peter in. 10 minutes later my alarm went off.
Needless to say, I had an inclination to wake up grumpy...however, I remembered that I had made a commitment to "Always Remember Him" and "Keep His Commandments" so I said a quick prayer that I wouldn't let the bad start to my morning ruin the rest of my day and that I would be able to be happy regardless. I am happy to announce that I ended up having one of the best days I've had in quite a while!
I have a tendency to hiccup very loudly, a couple times in a row, every once and while throughout my day. Such a disturbance happened to me while I was walking past one of the cleaners at the corporate office. One came and then a short moment later, the second. I apologized, excused myself and said, "Oh, these hiccups". She laughed and said, "Oh, I wasn't sure if you'd hiccuped or burped." I gave a light laugh as I stepped into the elevator.
My first thought was, burp what a funny word!
My second thought was, who would burp that loudly at work?
My third thought was, who would burp two times in a row like that at work?
My last thought was, if she mistook my hiccups for burps...how many others have done the same??
