This weekend’s Trifecta challenge was to write a 33-word example of personification: the practice of attaching human traits and characteristics with inanimate objects, phenomena, and animals. Enjoy!

It was without sympathy. It didn’t even understand the concept. So the alarm clock didn’t even hesitate when it unleashed a deafening shrill that snapped poor Tabitha into a thoroughly lousy Monday awakening.

    I hate that snapped awake feeling ):

  9. I use my cell phone as an alarm, and it must awaken me gently – no blaring buzzers and beeps for me. Otherwise, I’m crabby all day.

    • I use my cell phone too; it has three different alarms, and it usually takes all three to get me up. Sigh.

  10. Great choice, Michael!

  11. Alarm clocks = utmost evil. hehe
