Alarm Clocks

I have an alarm clock. I'm sure everyone does. Well, actually, I have 3 alarm clocks. But I like to use the old one. The 3 alarm clocks all have different functions, different styles, and different looks. The alarm clock I use is old. Very old. So old that it doesn't have a radio function. It is a clock and that is all it does. And it is made by a company I have never heard of before. Spartus. Spartus, if you are out there reading this, I love what you've done with the clock, and I hope you're still making them.

The second clock is just a normal clock. It has 2 alarms, a radio, and a clock. You know, just a basic clock.I guess it gets the job done, but it just doesn't have the pizazz that good old Sparty does.

The last clock is an electronic marvel. It sets itself. That's right, It can set itself. The only problem is, this clock is also showing it's age. It was made at a time when daylight savings was set on a different day. So when this clock set itself, it's wrong for about 2 months of the year. And a selfsetting clock that is wrong 1/6 of the time? What good is that?

No good, that's what. So I threw it out when I cleaned my room.
