An Alarming Question

Why do I turn off my alarm when it goes off?  Shouldn’t I turn it off when it goes on?  Or at least turn it on when it goes off?  If it’s already going off, why do I have to turn it off?

There are some things I just don’t get.

  1. Aren’t we fortunate to have grown up with this language. I would hate to have to learn it if I didn’t know it. Consider Read prounounced reed or red one the present tense and one the past tense of the same verb!Consider John: a boat,a toilet,a name,and a customer (of sorts). I think maybe french or spanish might be easier and also more pleasant top listen to.

  2. I wonder how a Spanish or French person would say they turn off their alarm when it goes off.

    Great insight about the name “John”! Makes me question some parents’ motives….
