It’s that time of year again – set your clocks ahead by one hour or “spring ahead”, which is a cheerful way of saying you just lost an hour of time.
Twice a year I roam about my house thinking, why does a chronically late family have so many clocks?
Our lack of punctuality could be blamed on the inconsistent settings. It’s not uncommon to see digital displays of 10:08, 10:12, and 10:13 all within a two-foot radius.
Twice a year we have the opportunity to synchronize our clock plethora, but twice a year we simply press the hour button until we've advanced or gone back an hour. As a result, each room in the house has its own time zone.
