It is a battery operated one. Twice this week I have found in 1 hour or 2 hours ahead. :scared:

1. You have a magic clock.
It gives you extra time.

I use my cellphone to wake me up, great alarm.

2. You probably sleepwalked across some time zones.
Nothing supernatural about it at all.

5. It's astounding. Time is fleeting. Madness takes its toll. But listen closely.

6. It did it again tonight even though I had just changed the battery. Too bad. I liked that alarm
clock.

7. Do you have a cat? Maybe they wish to be fed earlier?
But seriously, my cat walks on my clock and changes things all the time.

8. I must be that the clock stops for 11 hours or something. I tried a new battery
but it still went all wonky on me. Time for a new clock.

9. These quartz clocks start running fast as they age.
I had one that was gaining an hour every week.

11. You could sell the clock to someone who can't be on time anyway.
A hour here and there wouldn't matter to them.

12. Or donate it to Goodwill.
Most the clocks I've bought there run fast.

15. I got that. I just wondered how it ended up ahead. Last night I put a new battery in and it was
behind. Time to get rid of the little bugger!
