Daylight Savings - The Morning After

KATIE:  Ok, Glogirly. It's time for breakfast already. 8AM and you're still in bed. Did you forget to turn your alarm clock forward last night? This Daylight Savings stuff is going to starve us to death.

WAFFLES:  Boss! We have a daylight savings account? Like at the bank? With an ATM card and everything? 

KATIE:   Waffles, there's no savings account, no ATM card. Daylight savings means we LOST an hour yesterday. 

WAFFLES:  Did we bounce a check? Is that why we lost an hour? Are we in trouble with the daylight savings bank?

KATIE:  Waffles, there is no bank. 



WAFFLES:  Oh my COD! Did someone rob it?  What about all our daylight savings? 

KATIE:  Waffles, now listen to me. Forget the banks. There's no such thing as a daylight savings bank–

WAFFLES:  But where does everybody keep all their daylight savings? What, are we supposed to keep it under our mattress???

KATIE:  Waffles, daylight savings is when we turn the clocks forward by one hour every spring. 

WAFFLES:  Boss, it's not spring. There's still snow and stuff. This sounds fishy.

KATIE:  Whatever. Every year on the second sunday in March we turn the clocks forward by one hour. That's what we did yesterday. 

WAFFLES:  But if we changed all the clocks, how will we know what time it is? How will we know when it's time for dinner???



KATIE:  Oh, we'll know.

  4. Waffles, our "inner" clock tells us when it's time for dinner!
    And breakfast, second breakfast, noon, treats, etc....

  8. We ALWAYS know when it's time for dinner. That's never a problem. To be safe, you can ask every time someone goes into the kitchen.

  10. I had to wake Ruby up yesterday morning. Cats have the right idea: why on earth do humans need to mess with time?

  16. Waffles, this is Valentina. I for one am not fooled by Daylight Savings. I woke Z-Girl up at the same 4:45AM timeframe as always on Sunday. She wanted to know who adjusted my internal clock. I guess this is why she refers to me as the Alarm Cat.
    Don't worry, in the fall we gain an hour back. But really this gain and loss is all in the mind of human beings. They think they are eluding Father Time....

  19. Only humans would come up with this silly, slack-and-leave-us-starving time change thing. We think it's all a ruse to make us think they rule everything, including time. But we know better, don't we...

    Great idea, Waffles.
