His alarm is set to a specific time and radio station because he's figured out when they do their news and he gets to listen to it. This morning, it was at the very end, and he caught them saying, "And after this song, we'll have a discussion about one of the greatest controversies of today: How do you get butter out of the tub?" He spent the time during the song wondering why anyone would put butter in the tub, and it was only after the discussion started that he realized they were talking about tubs of butter, not the bathtub.
Five minutes of hysterical laughter is one of the best ways to wake up.
You should also notice that not only did my husband do something pretty stupid and embarrassing, but he also made a point to come tell me about it. He loves laughter and he loves to make me laugh, especially when it's deprecating to himself. I love him.
