Our home is adorned with clocks. (If you know me and you've been to our home, you know what I mean...as I sit here on the couch already tired from a lost hour of sleep, I am within view of seven clocks.
We have big clocks, little clocks, wall clocks, clocks on stands, digital clocks, analog clocks, clocks with arabic numerals, clocks with roman numerals (Did you know that all roman numeral clocks use IIII instead of IV?), not to mention cell phone clocks, answering machine clocks, alarm clocks, microwave clocks, coffee pot clocks, television clocks, VCR clocks, DVD clocks, game console clocks, camera clocks, vehicle clocks, etc...and not a freakin' one has the technology to move itself forward.
I've got an idea...why don't we all adjust our clocks ahead just 30 minutes, leave them all the heck alone next November and the following March, and every single time we get the urge to mess with them...and leave time alone! Then, there would be no adjusing of clocks...no flight time rearrangements, no "springing forward" of all of our home clocks, and no messing with my own internal body clock!
But because we've always done it this way (for as long as I can remember), I will spend at least the next hour resetting all of the clocks around me one hour forward. On second thought, I think I may just leave them alone; my technological mind says they'll all be right again in about six months...there...I just really saved an hour of daylight!
