Wake-up Call

I awaken to a Saturday morning, but not on my own. 

There is a distant noise. 

Half awake, I try to identify the sound.

Muffled voices, coming from the other side of the wall.  

My kids are with their dad, so it must be my son's alarm radio.   

Too lazy to get up and turn it off.

From downstairs, I hear a "Beep, beep!"

Fast, repetitive - high pitched. 

The Elliptical, reminding me that I did not use it yesterday.      

     "Beep, beep!"

There it goes again.

     "Time to exercise," it is saying.   

The radio is still making noise.

Technology is telling me to get up. 

Saturday morning, or not.
