This has the beginnings of a really bad piece of fiction. I woke up this morning for work and it generally seemed to be a pretty normal morning. I was really awake and refreshed, which was odd considering that it was 6am and I never really like getting up that early. I looked out the window; everything looked fine and normal. I had breakfast, got ready for work, warmed up the car. On the way I noticed there was less traffic, but it was subtle. There were enough cars that I didn’t feel like the roads were empty but they were few enough that I was blazing through intersections and making tremendous time. I was really happy with myself. Then I had a sudden realization (you may have figured it out):
Last night, I arm-wrestled with Daylight Savings Time and it kicked my ass.
I completely forgot to reset the clocks. It wasn’t 6:30 in the morning that I left the house. It was 5:30. And by the time I realized this it was almost 6. I was too far to go home, so I went on my way. Now, here I am at my desk, almost 2 hours early, thinking about how dumb I am.
The funniest part is, I was so awake this morning, but then when I realized it was an hour earlier I started to feel tired. So I bought some coffee at Wawa. Costa Rican blend…I hope it’s good. It’s still too hot to drink.
So yeah, the moral of the story: I’m dumb. Also, always remember to reset your clocks. Thanks.
