A reprint from my archives. Because it bears repeating.
Curses you, George Vernon Hudson!
George is the reason I’m so exhausted this morning.
George is the reason that there is a 68% increase in lost days of work around this time of year due to injury on the job.
George is the reason that there will be a spike in heart attacks this week.
Because of George, children across the country may be waiting for their school bus in the dark.
And if my kids get sick in the next few days, I’m blaming George!
George is responsible for my certain crabbiness for the next few days because, frankly, it’s all his fault.
Curses you, Daylight Saving Time!
(The inspiration for this post came from my curiosity of whose stupid idea this was, anyway. Because it certainly wasn’t a mother who thought, “Let’s deprive everyone of an hour of sleep during flu and cold season. What a great idea!”)
