Is it just me or does anyone else hate Daylight savings Time in the Spring? MacGyver and I actually got into an argument over it in the car on the way to the cabin and not for the reason you would think.
He actually said that he likes turning the clocks back because he likes gaining the extra daylight and I was all like, ‘dude, we lose an hour!’
And then I had to pull up the info on the Nasa site to prove it to him, had to because that’s how I roll, scientifically! You LOSE an hour. LOSE.
But I really do hate daylight savings time in the spring. It throws me off completely. I love waking up right now because at 6:30AM the sun is just peeking above the horizon and it’s light enough for me to go running and the cars can see me and I can see them and I don’t have to worry about anyone hitting me and I can go running and be back before 7:30AM. It’s blissful.
But then, Daylight Savings Time comes around and Bam! It screws everything up.
I hate you Daylight Savings Time.
I also hate the fact that losing an hour also means it’s warmer by the time I leave to go running in the morning. That may not seem like a big deal to those of you who live in Alaska or Minnesota but I live in freakin Florida and its balls hot in April already! So an hour makes all the difference in the damn world because by the time I leave to run it could be 5 to 10 degrees hotter than it was the week before.
And then around 10PM when I would normally be tired and start to wind down and watch a little TV and maybe chill out and get ready to hit the hay, I’ll still be wide awake because newsflash, IT’S STILL 9PM! My body isn’t fooled by what it says on the clock. My body is smarter than that!
And did you know that Springtime Daylight Savings Time has been linked to an increase in Heart Attacks and Cluster Headaches? Well it has!
So you see, my paranoia is real. Daylight Savings Time is not only annoying, it can kill you.
WTF, it’s Wednesday and I want to keep my hour! Who’s with me? Let’s ban Daylight Savings time and save the World!
