Whether the clock moves backward or forward, every parent recognizes that time when clocks change as THE CURSE. Some sicko without children decided that Fall Back and Spring Forward were brilliant little gems of ingenuity. JCK begs to differ. In fact, JCK calls this Daylight WhoopAss Time.
For some reason JCK never learns. Much is made of the extra hour she will get. Extra hour her ass. That "extra hour" can be seen as children awakening at 5am, because they are still on the old time. Even the cat starts his morning prowl, bellowing to all and sundry.
Indeed, JCK is perturbed. Perturbed!
It's 7:40pm (new time!) and her kids are asleep. Lovely...that extra hour, ripe for savoring a glass of wine, snuggling up with her book, or awaiting the return of her husband. Alas, no....with Daylight WhoopAss time retreating, JCK finds that she is also on the old time. Hence, JCK is falling asleep over the keyboard of her notebook computer.
So, now we have arrived in Daily Standard Time. JCK's standards fall in a completely different zone. In fact, JCK believes that there is nothing normal, familiar, or usual about a time change that causes all havoc for smaller people in her household.
