Boo to the End of Daylight Savings

This end to Daylight Savings: I’m having second thoughts about it.

I bumbled around the house for hours on its first morning, totally confused about what time it was.

I got up at 4am, who knows why. I just woke up.

So I took a bath.

I ate breakfast.

Then I sanded four little tables that I had stripped the day before and wiped them down with mineral spirits.

I rearranged furniture, dragging chairs all around the living room.

I looked at the clock, thinking it must be noon, but it was really only 9am.

When noon did come it seemed like 5:00 in the afternoon.

And when 5pm came, well, by then it was pitch dark and it felt like midnight.

I’m writing this at 7:00 on Sunday evening and going to bed as soon as I dot the last ‘i’.

If it appears at 4am Monday morning you’ll know it all happened again.

This monkeying with the Big Clock that 49 of the 50 states do, I don’t know about it.

  1. Perfectly said. I got up and clipped brush, raked leaves, walked the dog, made coffee, drove to the village for the Sunday Times and when I finally sat down to breakfast it was only 8 a.m.
