In college my husband studied "communications", which we always chalk up to irony. He is a funny communicator. Extremely literal. I once asked him to take the sheets off of the bed. And he did. The fitted sheet and the the flat sheet. But, apparently to him, sheets do not also mean pillow cases. This sort of thing is always happening and I usually end up saying something extremely helpful like, "just pretend you understand!"
Anyway, in one of his communication courses he had to write some sort of advertisement for a new gadget. So his group made an advertisement for an alarm clock that instead of waking you up through sound, would wake you up by smell. It would emit an odor of your choosing to awaken you. You know, like coffee.
I was thinking about that alarm clock (which, by the way, doesn't exist that I know of) while this bread was baking. I would want to wake up to the scent of freshly baked bread.
Especially on a rainy morning like today.
