Clarence’s Clarinet

Clarence played his brand new clarinet very loud: Phweeee!!

It made his little sister angry, so he played it even louder: PHWEEEEEE!!!

In a puff of orange smoke, a genie appeared. It said, “I’ll grant you two wishes.”

Clarence wished for an even louder clarinet, and a pair of earplugs.

Overt Alert

Just as I’m easing myself through a bank of lasers, the last security measure between me and my target, I’m jolted by the ear-splitting blare of a siren, followed by the chiming and gonging of bells and the braying of a chorus of sick donkeys.

I hate my alarm clock.

Actually, his feelings were pretty consistent.
