I don't understand what this tiny square robot is trying to say!!!

Sometimes I answer it and have whole conversations, then fall back to sleep. I hope I don't sound drunk at 8am...

Oh gosh I know what you are talking about, though instead of drunk I sound pissed. ono I don't mean to but I guess it's just my anger for being woken up showing through?

Oh thank god i'm not the only one who's done this

Or tried to answer the alarm clock. >_>;

Hahaha I'm so used to people texting me instead of calling that sometimes when I DO get a phone call, I don't pick up because I spend too much time being confused at what that sound is... XD

I'll try to be succinct, here, but it's a bit long:
I used to be a dealer in a casino. Dealers are required to 'wash their hands' (clap together, then flip palm up, and then palm down) so that the eye in the sky (overhead cameras) can see we aren't palming anything. We have to do this anytime we touch just about anything atypical to dealing, and when we are replaced by someone else at the table.

I haven't been a dealer in many years, and yet I still 'wash my hands' reflexively in various situations. Including hitting snooze on the alarm clock, or anything else I do while I'm half-asleep still. Hit snooze. Expose both hands. Clap together, then with one hand palm up and the other hand palm down, flip them to expose both sides. Then crawl back under the covers.

It makes my husband laugh so very, very hard...

My readers have the best stories :D Thank you, Shaz, I laughed very, very hard too.
I'm sorry ;)

Oh, don't apologize for laughing - It's funny! I know it's silly but, hey, I can't help it, so might as well get a laugh out if it, yeah?

Of course, doing this while wide awake is when it gets embarrassing. Like in a grocery store... taking something off the shelf, putting it back on the shelf, and quickly flipping the hand used in this action palm up/palm down to show it's clear.

At least now I am able to actually accept cash placed into my hand, instead of asking the cashier to put it down so that I can pick it up (we weren't allowed to have money placed directly into our hands at the casino). So, hey, progress!
