I was supposed to play golf this morning. My friends and I had a 7:30AM tee time. I woke up early like I usually do, 20 years in the military has a tendency to ingrain that morning clock into your soul. Looked at my watch, it was 6:30, good deal I thought, plenty of time.
I jumped in the shower. After I finished up in the bathroom I started to get dressed. I was filling my pockets with the assortment of BS I carry around with me when I grabbed my cell phone. This little miracle of modern science showed me the truth this morning. I looked at it, just to make sure there were none of those phantom voice mails that show up, you know the ones, your phone never rings and somebody ends up getting sent right to voice mail and the next time you talk to them they ask, "why didn't you answer your phone?" Anyway, when I looked at the phone, it said it was ALREADY 7:30! That's when DST smacked me in the head with the board!
This is just one more reason that I liked living in AZ. No Daylight Saving Time! Who thought up this stupid shit anyway? Where is my saved daylight? The day doesn't get any longer, it's still only 24 hours and no matter what the powers that be try to do, the earth will not revolve around the sun any faster than it did before we changed the clocks. It should be called LST for Lose Sleep TIme! I just wonder if normal people ever thought this was a good idea. Let's think about this, wouldn't it be easier to just set your alarm an hour earlier instead of inconviencing an entire continent or the world for that matter? Isn't this a good place to use that old saying "rob Peter to pay Paul"? That's all we're doing, robbing an hour from one part of the day to move it to another part of the day. One of the Dumbest freaking ideas ever thought up.
Yeah that's right, I missed my tee time and boy am I pissed! Shut up and make me some coffee!
