September drabbles - 10

Danny wasn’t very good at waking up. He set his alarm clock. It didn’t work. He set his phone; it didn’t ring. Then he downloaded “Wakeup” to his computer.

Danny became an expert getter-upper and the neighborhood pain. Five thirty sharp, the computer would screech and wail and Danny would leap.

“Stop that noise,” shouted old Mr. Thompson next door.

“Sorry sir,” shouted Dan.

“Where’s the fire?” Mrs. Williams wailed.

“Only me.”

“It’s the end o’the world!”

“No, Miss Hughes, just the start o’the morning.”

Danny rushed out to deliver newspapers, while neighbors dreamed, and his Mom sighed with relief.
