This is the time of the year that we all agree to live the same lie. Well, I don’t know that we agree to it, per se, as much as the lie is forced on us by the government.
No, I’m not talking about tax season, although that might be an interesting discussion. No, instead, I’m talking about daylight savings.
Last weekend was the time where much of the United States changes their collective clocks forward an hour. Somebody told me it was in an effort to conserve energy. Whatever.
You know, my body knows its a lie. When the alarm clock started blaring at 6AM (really 5AM, but since we’re all going along with the government on this one, we’ll just use DST times, instead of standard, or, um, REAL times) this morning, my body refused to wake up and get going. Nope. I couldn’t get up a minute before 7:30. It just wasn’t possible. Then I felt bad for sleeping in. Like its MY fault?? 🙂
I sound really bitter, which isn’t true at all. In fact, I prefer daylight savings time to standard time. I just don’t like the SWITCH from standard to DST. It seriously takes me a week to fully adjust. It’s like jet lag without leaving home.
In any case, we’ll keep living the lie so we can have more hours of daylight in the evening, which will conserve energy, which will save the rainforests, effectually saving the world and making you a hero.
New party line: “Save the world. Support DST.”
Like I said. It’s all a lie.
