Just now, while working a little more on cleaning her room, I had occasion to muck about with her alarm clock.
Mom always preferred mechanical alarm clocks. When one broke she bought another. She could use battery-powered ones but always had a mechanical one ticking away.
So that brings us to this particular alarm clock, the last mechanical alarm clock she had.
The clock is stopped at 10:16. I cannot restart it. It looks as if it was overwound, but still.
Coincidence? Perhaps. But creepy nonetheless.
($5 says I set it to 10:15-ish, and just forgot I did it.)
