Josh picked up his alarm clock and threw it across the room. Hearing it break, he relaxed, settling back into bed and wrapping his arms around his pillow.

‘Wait a second. Since when does my pillow have blonde hair?’

"Josh, it’s Saturday morning. Why did you set your alarm? And when did you have time to set it? I thought we were pretty busy last night."

‘Oh. It’s just Donna.’

"I don’t know. I guess I did it out of habit."

‘Wait a second. Donna?’


"Yeah Donna?"

"Did you enjoy last night?"

"Well, yeah, I definitely did. Did you?"

‘Last night. What did I do last night? Oh yeah! That! How could I have forgotten that?’

"Last night was the best night of my life. I love you Josh."

"I love you too Donna."

"Let’s go back to sleep."


Closing his eyes, Josh settled back into the bed, holding Donna in his arms.



"Do you always throw your alarm clock against the wall in the morning?"

Josh laughed and pulled Donna closer.

"Yeah, I do. The people at Wal-Mart love me. I’m in there twice a week at least, buying a new one."

"I’m sure that you provide them with constant amusement."

"There’s only one person in the world that I want to constantly amuse."

"And who’s that?"


Donna snuggled up closer to him.

"You have no idea how your words affect me Joshua." 


Later that day, Donna found herself standing in Wal-Mart with Josh, looking at the alarm clocks.

‘How did I go from lying in bed with Josh to standing in Wal-Mart with Josh?’

"Donna? If you moved in with me, then I bet we could use your alarm clock?"

‘I couldn’t have heard that right. I couldn’t have heard that right.’

"Sure Josh. We’ll use my alarm clock from now on."

"Does that mean that you’ll move in with me?"

‘I swear I just heard him say move in with me again.’

"Are you serious?"

"Well, yeah. I am. Besides, it’s not like I’m going to let you spend the night at your apartment alone anymore. And I know that I won’t be spending the night in my apartment alone anymore."

‘He’s serious. He’s actually serious.’

"Josh, did you break your alarm clock again?"

Turning around, Donna saw a Wal-Mart employee standing there looking at him.

"Yes Andy, I did. However, I am trying to convince this beautiful woman to move in with me so we can just use her alarm clock."

"Well, I hope that you can do that. She looks like one not to let go of. How’s your mom doing?"

"Mom’s doing good. How’s Shelly?"

"Shelly’s great. Oh, and why don’t you buy one that is battery operated? It won’t rip the cord out of it when you throw it."

"Thanks for the advice. I might have to do that."

"Well, come to my check out and I’ll give you a discount on it. Lord knows you buy enough of those in here."

"Thanks Andy."

After Andy walked away, Donna turned towards Josh.

"They know you personally?"

"I told you I came in here at least twice a week just to buy a new alarm clock."
