This morning my life changed; for the better, for the long term, and for the measly price of $120.
I’m not that averse to getting up early. I like being out of bed and moving and especially having a bit of day to enjoy before setting out for work. This is one of the reasons why I love summer so much – the sun wakes me up around 6.30, gently, and I get out of bed straight away feeling energized.
In the WINTER though I wake up like it’s a goddamn air-raid in response to my alarm and then, depending on how tired I am, fall asleep again on the couch in the lounge in response to the oppressive darkness outside. It sucked, it usurped my blissful pre-work coffee chilling time, but it was my lot in life; my cross to bear.
Now I wake up like this.
Only calmer, faster, and with a motorbike.
How did $120 bring me such delight?
In a paper bag containing a box with a Philips logo on the side. Discreetly elegant even.
Inside the box was a Philips Wake Up Light. If you’ve never heard of a Philips wake up light it’s a damn lucky thing you’re reading this. If you have heard of a Philips wake up light and thought ‘pffftt, that sounds like a total crock’ then YOU. WERE. WRONG.
It’s like a gradual sunrise in your bedroom every morning, no matter how bleak the day is outside. Birds sing. Innocent children laugh in delight. Fresh scones are left on a nearby windowsill. If you’re lucky, like me, a French milkmaid is by your side.
Philips wake up light. Buy one today, start having a better life immediately. Unless it’s summer where you are in which case you’ll have to wait 4 months you bastard.
