Rhymin’ Weekly Weigh-In: Daylight Savings Time edition

“Spring forward, fall back!” Such a captivating idea, isn’t it? Just adjusting time a wee bit, because science!


As kids, didn’t we think that was just the neatest thing? Twice a year, we assumed complete control over time itself! Doctor Who, Doc Brown, and Rick, all rolled up into one.

One minute, it’s 9:00 at night. Then, we just SAY it’s 10:00 (or 8:00, and suddenly, it’s 10:00 (or 8:00)! How magical is that?


Flash forward about 20-30 years, and that kid is no longer a Time Lord. That kid has a job and a mortgage and a tight schedule, and changing the time twice a year? Just plain ANNOYING, that’s what it is. Time Lord Schmime Lord.


But till recently, it seemed like one of those things that was set in stone, decreed from above and unchangeable.


However, more and more U.S. states have rejected the Tyranny of the Time Lords, so there’s hope!


So anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, my weigh-in! Here goes – ready?


Yeah, I’m skatin’ right on the edge of the big Two-Oh-Oh, folks!! That means NEXT Monday’s weigh-in should be super-fantabu-awesome! Unless I screw up and eat KFC every day, which PROBABLY won’t happen. But y’know, gotta keep a LITTLE suspense going in this blog, right?


Meanwhile, enjoy your week, and remember – save that daylight because, uh, America!!
