Imagine the scene if you will.
Kitchen.Morning. Interior. Hard Electric light.
See Nina in her PJS stirring the breakfast porridge in the saucepan while sipping her orange juice. Clever Nina.
Watch Nina admire the bright moon and stars in the silence of the morning.
See Nina go to set breakfast table and glance at the clock.
See Nina sigh. Drat, Clock has stopped. Battery must be dead. Nina skips and hops into living room to check time on wind up proper clock so that she can reset electric one.
Hear Nina sigh. Clock has not stopped. Both are saying the same time.
Because it is 03.49 in the morning and the alarm clock has woken us at 3. 30 am instead of 5.30am.
How Nina laughs.
