Oh, how I waited for March 8 this year. No longer would I have to be short with the grocery cashier who was working too slowly - making me a nervous wreck because it was getting near 5 o'clock and I'd have to risk driving home in the dark. Same thing when they kept me waiting in the doctor's office.
After March 8 there could be dinners with friends and still time to get home before dark.
However, my enthusiasm was dampened by all the talk show guests and hosts claiming it's not the thing to do - daylight-saving time - moving those clocks ahead. What?
They want to deprive workers who are cooped up all day most of the year of the many things that lighter and brighter evenings bring. A little golfing, safe hiking, badminton, playing a little catch with the kids. Not to mention a needed little dose of Vitamin D when they have so little opportunity to do so unless they use the bottle - of Vitamin D, I mean. Then there is the question of grass cutting-- a need in the summer. Or maybe they'd like it done in the light early morning hours before work when the ground is still wet.
Or is this a conspiracy to get Grannies off the road by 6?
