Daylight Savings Time — A Proposal

Saturday night was great. I stayed up until 11:00 reading and still got eight hours of sleep before I had to get up at 6:00 to get ready for church. It was so great, in fact, that I've developed a plan to make it a daily occurance.

It's simple. Every night at 2:00 am, we set the clocks back an hour. This will enable us to stay up later and still get a good night's sleep.

"Won't work," you say? "Time will get all fouled up and soon we'll be going to bed at noon and it will snow on the Fourth of July!"

Nonsense. We simply set our clocks forward an hour each afternoon to compensate — say between 3:00 and 4:00 when everyone is beginning to wonder if the work day will ever end. It will be wonderful. You'll be sitting there staring at your clock, dredding the next hour when suddenly it will be 4:00 and you can start cleaning your desk and getting ready to head home.

It's a perfect plan.

Thank you.

    My main problem with it: The 3yo’s never get the memo.
