Wednesday Wisdom: It's About Time
We have at least a dozen clocks in the house, plus our watches, plus one in the truck and one in the car. This weekend we'll have to reset almost all of them (a couple are smart enough to reset themselves). What a project!
Maybe anticipating daylight saving time is what reminded me of this quote. I did some research, trying to find out who to give credit for the quote, and found that many sites name Mr. Lee Segall as its source. In fact, this quote is sometimes referred to as Segal's Law (whoever named it also misspelled it). Besides Lee Segall it was also credited to Albert Einstein, to an Irish saying, and to an old Chinese proverb.
The saying, I learned, actually refers not to having more than one watch, but to having too much conflicting information when trying to make a decision.
The only information I'm going to care about this weekend is whether I lose an hour of sleep or gain one.
In any case, don't forget to spring forward Saturday night so you won't be late Sunday morning. Or maybe you'll be early. Whichever it is, get those clocks and watches set so you'll be on time!
