Ticking away

I woke up today with some confusion -- my alarm clock said 2:55 PM. Could I have really slept for thirteen hours?

No. My watch was set to ten. I looked closer at the alarm clock and noticed the blinky colon was blinking too fast. Further measurements revealed that it was blinking twice as fast as normal: instead of once per second, it was blinking every half-second. The clock was advancing one minute for every thirty seconds that passed. Apparently, at seven-thirty this morning, the clock up and decided to race through the day.

I'm going to need more coffee if I'm going to try to catch up.
