I hope you get this email and choose to respond to it today because this is literally a time sensitive issue!
I woke up this morning, checked the time on my cell phone, and decided to go back to sleep.
Well, when I finally woke up, got out of bed, and checked my email, I noticed that the time on my laptop was an hour later than the time on my cell phone. I rushed down to the living room, and discovered that the time on the cable box was also an hour later than the time on my cell phone.
I’m pretty sure that my cell phone didn’t register the time change for “springing ahead”, but how can I be sure that my computer and cable aren’t wrong? I don’t have any clocks in the house and I don’t have a watch, so what the hell time is it?
Please help as I feel like I am…
Trapped In A Tear In The Space/Time Continuum
I blame myself for your confusion. Clearly, it has been too long since I’ve lectured my readers about their dependency on technology and how this paves the way for The Robot Apocalypse.
I’m stunned The Machines haven’t enslaved us all by now to be perfectly honest.
I also sleep with my cell phone next to the bed and check it for the time since the light up display is so easy to read in the middle of the night.
However, I also keep an old school, battery operated alarm clock on the nightstand. I rely on that device to wake me up every morning. If my life depended on it, I would look to my alarm clock for the time, rather than to the alarm clock, because I know that Robot High Command cannot mess with the former.
So I advise you to spring ahead and buy an alarm clock. Stop looking to computer driven technology to give your life a sense of order. Buy a watch that you have to wind every twenty-four hours. Get a sundial, or learn to tell the time simply by checking the position of the Sun in the sky.
Don’t be so obsessed with time. You’ve only got a limited amount of it, so just use it how you see fit. Show up for work when you feel like it, eat your meals when your stomach tells you it’s hungry, and arrive at your doctor’s appointment when you want to be seen.
Time is on my side. Yes, it is. Let it be on your side, too.
