Demetri Martin:

“Lately I’ve been waking up at 8:32. The weird thing is that I don’t have an alarm clock. I just open my eyes when I’m done sleeping. It doesn’t matter when I go to sleep, when I wake up and look at my watch it almost always says “8:32.” I’ve been trying to switch up my wake-up style (to get a different time) by waiting a few minutes before I look at my watch. But it’s still 8:32. So, I guess it’s not that I’m necessarily waking up at 8:32. It’s more that I look at my watch for the first time every morning at 8:32. (When I say “almost always” above, I mean 19 out of the last 23 times I’ve woken up in my bed my watch has said “8:32.”) I’m not showing off, I’m just saying that there is something precise about me in the morning.”

  1. How odd. I have something similar. It doesn’t happen *everyday* but almost, and it isn’t tied necessarily to when I wake up.. but I find myself *very* often glancing at a timepiece at precisely 10:26 … my birthday is October 26th…

    That is also the date on which all the “Back to the Future” movies is set. Coincidence?! 😉

  2. It’s very wierd you should say that because it reminded me of something I had never registered as something to remember at the time but still felt was strange. I too would wake at almost exactly the same time everyday, no matter what time I went to bed. I guess it could be something to do with noises outside my room, something that happens every morning…
