Could someone please silence my rooster?!

Ever wake up in the middle of the night -- and just can't fall back to sleep, like this chick?

[To see the short commercial -- of a woman being awakened in the middle of the night by a rooster, who then follows her to work -- click on where it says "YouTube." You will then be able to watch the clip on YouTube.]

Happens to me all the time, but not usually five days in a row, and it's killing me. (And no amount of meditating or breathing exercises seems to work. As soon as something wakes me -- hi honey! -- my brain clicks into gear and I cannot silence that darn rooster.)

I'd try medication, but after hearing all those disclaimers (which make up most of those ads you hear for Ambien and Lunesta), I'm pretty sure the "cure" is worse than the problem.

So, any ideas, people?

Repetitive prayer. Works every time.

Woah! Check out those side effects! I'd rather have the rooster. Speaking of which, I did. He was a gorgeous bird called Tennessee but we weren't allowed to keep him. We had some hungry people bidding on him in a Trademe auction but he ended up becoming a therapy pet in rest homes (I've seen the photos). I love a happy ending :)
