#SOL 15: Challenge – Day 2
Beep…Beep. The house is dark. I am sound asleep. There is a beep. Did I actually hear something? I know I was sound asleep…I think. Was I dreaming the sound? I don’t usually remember dreams so I can’t be sure. ignore it as just a figment of my imagination.
A half hour later: Beep…Beep. I can’t be imagining the same sound again. Should I get up and investigate? Where would I look? Was it coming from outside? Was there maybe an alien space craft hovering outside beeping up all of the snow that fell last night st that I wouldn’t have to shovel? I looked out the window. No such luck.
I guess I had better check out the house. It was dark. I didn’t put on my glasses so everything was a big blur. I walked doing the “kitty shuffle”. Those of you with pets know exactly what I mean. I meandered out to the living room careful not to bump into anything.
As I made my way through the room there it was again: Beep…beep. I saw a light coming from my cell phone. I left it by my chair when I went to bed. I looked there was a message: Low battery. Really? At 1:30 in the morning? It couldn’t tell me that at 10:00 when I was still awake.
I knew that if I didn’t plug it in to charge it would beep all night getting more persistent as power dwindled. Carrying the phone I went in search for the charger. I knew where I keep it so it was no big deal. However, I was still half asleep and I still didn’t put my glasses on.
I found what I needed, fumbled to connect the phone to the corn and then plug it into the wall. While doing that I hit a button on the phone. Don’t ask me which one because I have now idea. Now all of a sudden my phone started to talk to me. “Swipe to turn screen on.” “Settings.” “Screen turned off.”
How do I shut he up? It’s 1:30 in the morning. Kathy is asleep and I have this monotone female voice on my phone telling me what keys I am hitting. Finally I put the phone down to let it recharge. The voice was quiet.
Now the phone is fully charge but the annoying voice is still there. I have to figure out how to turn her off. I probably should also check the phone chaged more often so this doesn’t happen again.
