Well, I figured out what it is that I do with that "whole extra hour" each fall. I spend the entire day befuddled by every single clock in my pathway!
The clock in my car is eternally stuck on daylight savings time. I know there's some simpleton way to change the time but I never seem to figure it out until the next time change. So for the next few months I expect my car to be one hour ahead.
Somehow I managed to change the time on my favorite ten-dollar-Target-kid's-digital watch - but in the process, I also changed the date, set the alarm and it's now permanently on military time.
My cable box and VCR both have clocks on them - and they sit, one on top of the other. So last night I kept my eye on the VCR time because I expected the cable box time to change automatically (big brother cable companies - don't get me started on the computer and cell phone clocks! ) Well, I was up very late - you know, doing all the things I was eager to complete in that one extra hour. So when I went to bed, the cable box and VCR both read "2 AM" - Great! In my mind, that meant it was really 1 AM. Not bad! But when I looked at that stupid hand-me-down alarm clock by my bed, it read "3 AM" - How could that be?! Took me a while to figure out that while the cable box had already changed time, the VCR had freakishly done the same on its own!
So I don't know what time I went to sleep last night. I felt so tired, I was just glad to have the extra hour. Ironically, I woke up earlier than ever this morning - Did you know 6:00 comes twice a day?!
