The "Why your dreams don't let you wake up" Theory

If you wanna wake up early and you have set an alarm, like me, I'm sure a lot of you too have trouble rising with the alarm. I blame it on our dreams.
Inevitably, the mind does dream rather prolifically in the morning. So if you're in the middle of a good dream, you lounge around the bed a little longer hoping to see out the rest of it. On the contrary, if you're having a bad dream, you wanna lounge around longer because you figure, now that I'm awake, I might as well fix this dream up with a happy ending.
Sadly, on both counts, we end up losing to the time-bound realities of societal life...
Whoever you are that wants me to wake up early in the morning, know this, I'm not late because I am tardy, I'm late early in the mornings because of the sub-conscious nature of my dreams!
And if you have no trouble waking up in the morning, that's just sad. Largely because it means you don't dream enough...and as a recent research report by some fancy western university suggests, the most intelligent people are the ones that dream the most!

(Of course, this also implies that I'm one of the most intelligent people on the planet since I seem to indulge in plenty of day-dreaming in addition to all the regular dreaming at night!)

@Kriti:> Glad I could give you the perfect excuse! Now the prof could never blame you for being late, could he?

@Cutey:> I did not claim to be the most intelligent being babe, I just said I was one of the most intelligent! Short attention span you have, oh most intelligent one!

@Ria:> Hehehe...who wouldn't love it eh?
But what would you do if you were the boss n I gave you this reason?

i m not able to wake up even after setting the alarm...what does that mean..

Simple innit? You consider your dreams to be better than reality! The alarm is such an insignificant distraction, you choose to not even take cognizance of it!
