Give me back my hour!
What?! You'll return it in the fall?
But I need it now!
Time...there's not enough of it and now 'they' are taking away an hour. Well, not really, but it certainly seems like it. This must have something to do with the way this was all explained (or not explained) to me as a child..."We're going to lose an hour." "Move the clock forward because we've lost an hour." "Don't forget to change the clock; we're losing an hour over night." What do you mean "we've lost an hour?!" How can anyone lose an hour?!
I need that hour. I need it for doing stuff and for sleeping and, more importantly, playing with my camera. I 'suffer' for about a week after the time changes. For about a week I always feel like I have to hurry and catch up because I've lost an hour. And then I have all these great intentions of going to bed earlier, changing the clocks earlier, shutting off the TV earlier...all in the interest of easing into this time change thing. But nothing works.
I've heard numerous reasons for why we need to do this but I just can't justify any of them. And, yes, I know it will be lighter longer at the end of the day but that sure doesn't help we wake up in the morning. 'They' rob us every Spring and we let 'them.' Give me back my hour! Please...
