  1. I have enough trouble with daylight saving! The country should stay on one time all year, it’s idiotic. And I just heard on the radio that there are more accidents on the day after we ‘lose’ an hour’s sleep.
    I’m going back to bed.

  2. When I worked at the zoo, the birds would get surprised in the spring when dinner was “early” and then upset in the fall when it was “late.”
