Time Passages

Ah, Daylight Wastings Time! How I look forward to this twice a year! A weeks worth of lost sleep, starving when it's nowhere near mealtime, and being late for everything because I forgot to set my car clock for the change.

(Note to self: Have not yet changed car clock.)

This Sunday Last I managed to miss the time change, again! It was a full-on 10:20 in the morning by the time I realized I was on the wrong time schedule and had changed all my clocks.

So I changed the living room clock. I changed the kitchen clock. I changed the bedroom alarm clock. I changed the bathroom clock. I changed the clock in the spare bedroom. I changed the microwave clock and then I took a break, rested, caught my breath and girded my loins to change my watches, my VCR and the oven clock.

The last one I reset was the oven clock. 10:20. Finally!

Exactly Ten Hours and Twenty Minutes later my oven started beeping at me.

I had set the Oven Timer not the clock!!!!

my mother was so tired one night after working a double shift, she sat at a stop sign for 10 minutes waiting for it to turn green.

Is your Mother one of my Relatives, perchance?
