Lent Day 5
Sunday, March 9, 2014 – “Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody care about time?” Name the group that sang that song and win today’s prize of a cup of coffee. Of course that reference today is for the beginning of Daylight (insert your personal adjective here) Savings Time. And if you think today is bad, tomorrow is really going to suck. Statistics show more accidents the morning after the time change than any other day. Remember that old commercial “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature?” Well, it is not nice to fool with me either. However, I see my only options regarding the time change are to 1. Move to Arizona or 2. Deal with it. Well, that is a no brainer. It is neither the heat nor the humidity in Arizona. It is the attitude of the people. Perhaps it is due to their history of being the last of the lower 48 to become a state. And then that Gadsden Purchase thing. Perhaps they felt unwanted by the United States. After all, much of the state is a big hole in the ground. Perhaps I am wasting my time and your time thinking about the state of Arizona. See what the time change does to your brain? Those neural receptors get confused too and it causes the brain to produce weird thoughts. What is the deal with 2: 00 AM? Is there some clock like on Greenwich Meridian time or something? Does the earth turn on its axis at two o’clock to the new day? Why not midnight? That makes more sense. But then again, those who make more money and have more decision-making authority than I do, and legislate time changes seldom make much sense. And what time is it, if you cross the International Date Line? Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody care? Chicago.
