This event during our year - of switching the clock forwards and backwards - affords us the use of the singular excuse "oh, it's because of the time change." I guarantee you'll hear it this week at some point. Or your money back.
You may already know this, but next year, the time is going to spring forward a full month earlier and fall backward a week later. So, we'll change the time on March 11, not April 2nd, and turn it back on Nov. 4, not Oct. 29th. We'll have a whole extra month of freakishly long days. I know Babe is thrilled.
It's because of George W. if you can believe it.
